Presentation and Workshop by Dorit Cypis


Museum Studies Program
College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP)

The College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP) at The University of Cincinnati, is developing a trans-disciplinary museum studies certificate program that originates within the School of Art. The program is being designed to facilitate conversations across disciplines with an overarching goal for rigorous dialogues among artistic practices, social justice-oriented methods, and critical studies of exhibition and display.

DAAP has invited me to offer a public lecture about my artwork and a pedagogical workshop that facilitates discussion of museum studies and contemporary art practice, questioning institutional and cultural constructions of knowledge, meaning, and value. DAAP is also interested in the interrelationship of art and mediation that I have been pursuing the last several years.
