Where the United Nations Used to Be
Presentation by Caleb Duarte with Todd T Brown
January 28, 2012, 2 pm

Todd T Brown and fellow artist Caleb Duarte discuss the critical role of international artist residencies as they help to evolve artistic practices and perspectives in the context of globalization, particularly in regards to the global south.

INHERITANCE and DREAMS:

February 1-12, 2012
Tuesday-Sunday, 1:00-5:00 pm
Reception: Saturday, February 4, 3:00-5:00 pm
Kimball Gallery, de Young, Golden Gate Park
How do we face our personal and collective histories, as individuals and as a human family in conflict with one another? What is our inheritance, and is it possible to transform it? Brown’s process is an ongoing inquiry into the complexity of global identities: the ways in which we identify ourselves and others, the groups and cultures we inhabit, and the need for creative environments where we can encounter one another in a meaningful way. INHERITANCE and DREAMS concludes Brown’s yearlong Artist Fellowship with the de Young museum.
