Shadbolt Seminar 2017: Arts, Criticism and the City

Join us for a free lecture series as we explore various forms of historical and contemporary criticism and engage in a broadly based “cultural conversation” with artists, critics, and other cultural actors. Drawing on the GLS Shadbolt Community Scholars and other experts from SFU and beyond, we will explore the city’s arts scene, build the skills to understand and discuss different art forms, and experiment with various kinds of critical engagement.

As part of its inaugural Shadbolt Seminar, "Arts, Criticism and the City," SFU Graduate Liberal Studies (GLS) is offering this series of events open to past, present and prospective GLS students, guests, and the general public.   Thanks to the generous support of the Shadbolt Endowment and the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, these events are free of charge, though at-the-door donations of $5 toward the Graduate Liberal Studies' arts scholarship, the Ewan Clark Memorial Award, are much appreciated.
