Fall 2019

THUR, October 10 

6:30pm LECTURE & DISCUSSION: Raquel Velho, Assistant Prof., Science & Technology Studies at RPI, Monuments of Care: A Discussion About Infrastructures and Maintenance 

We don’t often think about pipes and roads as objects of love or devotion. Our collective imaginations detach infrastructure from emotions, though they are entirely dependent on our capacity for care and attention. In this space, we will discuss the labor that goes into the development, maintenance and even dismantling of infrastructure to consider what it means to stop or begin caring about the infrastructures that surround us.

FRI, October 18

6:30pm PECHA KUCHA NIGHT: Infrastructure Edition—Short talks by interesting people.

Please note: in case of rain on Beer Garden nights, we’ll move inside to the Armory at 130 New Scotland Ave.

THURS, November 14

6:30pm ARTIST TALK: Colin Boyd

Boyd creates alternate worlds, taking on the roles of novice naturalist, eccentric engineer, and dreamer of the supernatural. His work results in sculptural installations, fabricated ephemera and artifacts, prints, and stop-motion films that together present a collection of odd narratives that are colored by fantastical interpretations of nature and human history.
