Lecture by Michael Stone–Richards
Join us for the kick-off event for Critical Spatial Practices St. Louis with a lecture by Michael Stone-Richards, professor at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, Michigan, where he teaches on the topics of critical theory, biopolitics, comparative literary and visual studies, and the history and theory of modern and contemporary art practice.
This program is a part of Critical Spatial Practices St. Louis (CSPSTL), a multi-platform convening that takes on the spatial politics of the city with local and international figures in art and architecture. CSPSTL constellates around a series of city-wide exhibitions addressing the entanglements between (sub)urbanism, landscape, and race. Critical Spatial Practices St. Louis is the second Summer City Seminar carried out through Washington University's Divided City Initiative, a Mellon funded program linking architecture, urbanism, and the humanities. The Divided City is a collaborative effort of Washington University's Center for the Humanities and the Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts.
