Libraries Lecture Series: Steven Duval & Rebecca Blocksome

Dr. Steven Duval and Rebecca Blocksome, art editor at Spencer Museum of Art, will discuss the history of practice-led research, the role of hybrid practices in collaborative research, and their work at the Spencer Museum of Arts ARC (Arts-Research-Collaboration) project. Artists and curators have been making work for years that has produced knowledge but how does this knowledge turn into what we would traditionally call research. This talk will revolve around this question and coincides with the Watson Library exhibition art+science: Collaborative research at the University of Kansas. This is the first in a series of three events, and it is free and open to the public.
