Grief, Mourning, and Contemporary Art (Part II)
with Patricia Miranda

In this two-part lecture/workshop, artist, curator and educator Patricia Miranda will speak through the lens of art to both individual and collective ideas around grief, loss, mourning, solastalgia, and "homesickness". She will place this work and these ideas in the context of the challenges we face with COVID-19 and the Black Lives Matter movement. The first session will introduce the work of artists engaging in the themes of grief, loss and mourning; the second will discuss how the tools of art and diplomacy can help us effectively engage in the difficult conversations of our time.
