Sanjit Sethi: Huckleberry Finn Small Talk

December 8, 2010, 7:00–8:00 pm
Wattis Institute

Please join us for a Small Talk with CCA chair of Community Arts and director of the Center for Art and Public Life, Sanjit Sethi, at the Wattis Institute. All are welcome to attend these free lectures, which take place every Wednesday at 7 p.m. during the run of the exhibition Huckleberry Finn. Small Talks connect the artistic practices and research concerns of CCA faculty with the themes of the exhibition and Mark Twain's novel.

Sanjit Sethi's work involves disparate social and geographic communities, with a strong focus on interdisciplinary collaboration; it consistently deals with issues of nomadism, identity, the residue of labor, memory, and movement in the urban sphere. Before coming to CCA Sethi completed a Fulbright Fellowship in India on the Building Nomads Project, then served as director of the MFA program at the Memphis College of Art. His recent work includes a collaborative project titled Urban Defibrillation, the Gypsy Bridge Project, and the Kuni Wada Bakery Remembrance.
