Limbic Resonance with Dublin-based artist Fiona Hallinan.

Thursday October 27th, 2:30-4:00. Location: Agitprop,  2837 University Ave. (entrance on Utah St.)

The You That Is In It - Fiona Hallinan

This class will be an exploration of the notion of ‘limbic resonance’, the scientific term for the unspoken communication that occurs between mammals in physical contact with one another.

Taking form as a Skype chat with the teacher speaking from Ireland, the class itself challenges the possibilities of non-present communication. Can we replicate the experience of presence virtually? Using methods of anecdote, meditation and video trickery, the class will play with notions of embodiment and physicality, ultimately questioning whether true connection can be created through technology.


Also happening that week at UCSD:

KCDC All Corners Internet Conversation series.

Participate in conversations, publications and performances facilitated by international artists, teachers, curators, and scholars. This is an opportunity to play with blurring the geographical boundaries of learning, as teachers and students will be joining in from all corners of the globe on live projected video chat. These conversations are a project of Washington DC-based free, cross-disciplinary school called Knowledge Commons DC, and will also be hosted in DC at Hamiltonian Gallery

Ideal Museums & Maverick as Method:  A conversation between museum studies scholar Pablo v. Frankenburg and Stephanie Sherman and Chris Kennedy of Elsewhere Living Museum
Tuesday, October 25th 10:30-12:00, Visual Arts Facilities Performance Space.

Comparing and contrasting wide-ranging museum design research with the real life settings of Elsewhere Living Museum, we will approach the questions: What does your museum of the future look like? What would be its manifesto? How would it work? At the end of the conversation, students will be invited to pose questions to the presenters and to submit their own ideas for a magazine that will be based from this conversation.

Pablo Frankenburg is a scholar of museum studies pursuing his doctorate at the University of Tuebingen, Germany. Frankenberg has been conducting research in Asia, Europe, and the Middle East, asking museum consultants: What Makes the Ideal Museum?

Stephanie Sherman is co-director and Chris Kennedy is education curator at Elsewhere Living Museum in Greensboro, North Carolina. Elsewhere is a three store building housing one woman’s 58 year collection of thrift and surplus, which has become a living installation curated by hundreds of contributors over a 9 year period. Today, Elsewhere is a space to investigate creative collaboration, through community events, a residency program, and educational initiatives.

Both events organized by Kate Clark
