Keithley Symposium keynote speaker: Dread Scott

The 2022 Keithley Symposium keynote speaker will be Dread Scott, who makes revolutionary art to propel history forward. 

Scott’s talk, hosted by the Department of Art History and Art, will be held Wednesday, Dec. 14, from 6 to 7 p.m. in the Tinkham Veale University Center ballroom.

Scott doesn’t accept the economic foundations, social relations and governing ideas of America, and his work encourages audiences to explore important questions based upon these perspectives. This talk, titled “Anti-American,” will look at a sampling of his art from the past 30 years, which includes a range of media from performance and photography to screen printing, installation and video.
