Time Zones is a yearlong series of events sponsored by the Arts Research Center exploring time-based and socially engaged art practices in an international context.

Location/Translation: Art and Engagement from the Local to the Global is scheduled to coincide with the opening of the exhibition Six Lines of Flight: Shifting Geographies in Contemporary Art at SFMOMA. A panel of curators, artists, and scholars will discuss how regional circumstances get articulated within international art contexts–and how “global” conversations can redefine what we think of as “local” production.

Participants will include:

Catherine Cole, Theater, Dance & Performance Studies, UC Berkeley
Joseph del Pesco, Kadist San Francisco
Apsara DiQuinzio, SFMOMA
Mihnea Mircan, Extra City Kunsthal, Antwerp
Sanjit Sethi, Center for Art and Public Life, California College of the Arts

Acting ARC Director Julia Bryan-Wilson (History of Art) will moderate.

This event will also serve to welcome to the Berkeley campus Apsara DiQuinzio, who in October begins her new position as Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art and Phyllis C. Wattis MATRIX Curator at the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive.

The conversation has already started online: visit our ARC Muses blog to read reflections on “the local” by participating speakers.
