October 21, 2020 | 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Michael Stone-Richards will present the lecture “Negation and Disavowal in Spatial Politics” via Zoom as part of the Rice Architecture Fall 2020 Lecture Series. Drawing on the work of Detroit artists Scott Hocking and Carlos Diaz, among others, Michael Stone-Richards will explore the way in which erasure and camouflage in public space and monuments attest to the work or modes of political and cultural unconscious in racial politics and what he calls the politics of attention – the question of “Why now?,” posed by the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
Michael Stone-Richards is professor of Critical Practice and Visual Studies at the College for Creative Studies (Detroit) and editor at Detroit Research.Learn More
