Unsettling: Learning of Equity in Creative Expression and Teaching

Wednesday, December 1 @ 5:30pm
Online via Zoom

Xia Gao presents her work and her exploration of equity through her practice. “I would never feel confident to say that my work centers on equity. I would often say that it addresses cultural, social, economic, gender, and environmental issues. However, as a female immigrant trying to find my identity in shifted contexts, a sense of unsettlement has played a big part in my artistic expression, which relates to dislocation and relocation, adaptation and confrontation, and concealment and reveals. In this presentation, I would love to share the growth of my artistic voice in expressing these challenges and experiences that have intentionally or unintentionally touched on equity. And how much I have been learning about equity through art/design teaching.”


This event is part of the Equity & Justice Network Design Series and co-sponsored by the Design Studies Department.
