Arts + Design Mondays: Designing Spatiality for New Media Art, with Andrew and Deborah Rappaport

Lecture | March 20 | 6:30 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

 Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

Andrew and Deborah Rappaport founded the Minnesota Street Project in 2015, which offers affordable and economically sustainable spaces for art galleries, artists, and related nonprofits. The project is inspired by the couple’s belief that philanthropic support for the arts today requires an alternate model—one suited to the innovative nature of Silicon Valley and the region as a whole.

This event is part of UC Berkeley’s Art, Technology, and Culture Colloquium, an internationally recognized forum for presenting new ideas that challenge conventional wisdom about art, technology, and culture. This year’s theme is Digital Immersions, presenting artists, writers, curators, and scholars who consider contemporary issues at the intersection of aesthetic expression, emerging technologies, and cultural history from a critical perspective. Sponsored by the Berkeley Center for New Media, the Arts + Design Initiative, and the Arts Research Center at UC Berkeley.

 Admission to this lecture is free.
