WorldView: Cultural Intersections with Contemporary Art

Every thinking mind needs a worldview. This half-day seminar builds on the cross-cultural perspectives that engage and influence many contemporary artists. This year's program features Watermark (Jennifer Baichwal and Edward Burtynsky, 2013), a stark and stunning documentary that travels the globe to explore how different cultures relate to water or, increasingly, must deal with its absence.

Immediately following the screening, students work with Ohio State MFA candidate Michelle Sipes and mixed-media artist April Sunami to use movement, dance, and visual art to process issues raised in the film. Preprogram resources are provided and opportunities for pre- or post-classroom visits may be available upon request to further engage with the topic.
