Uncorked and On Topic Returns on October 20

Tuesday, October 18, 2016

What happens to a geographically identified culture when people arrive with their own art and designed objects? As globalization continues, how do cities with recognizable cultures and aesthetics remake themselves? On October 20, Abby Zbikowski of Dance at Illinois and Donna Buchanan of the School of Music will reflect on cultural and geographical identity. This informal conversation will take place at 5:15 p.m. in conjunction with Krannert Uncorked in the Tryon Festival Theatre Foyer at Krannert Center. Uncorked and On Topic is an ongoing series of discussions between FAA faculty members from different disciplines. The overarching theme for 2016–17 is "Home and Away: A Year of Conversations on the Local and Global."
