Wheaton’s music department is delighted to welcome scholar and journalist William Robin (UMD College Park). His talk is titled ““Minimalism Is History Now”: Bang on a Can and Minimalism in the Late Twentieth Century”. Professor Robin is a regular contributor to the New York Times, and his most recent book Industry is now available from Oxford University Press. Robin’s research explores how institutions structure the creation, dissemination, and reception of contemporary classical music in the United States. His research interests also include early American hymnody, Stravinsky, and the European postwar avant-garde.

Via Zoom, no registration required.

Pass the Mic! Create. Curate. Care.
Artists, curators, scholars, and art facilitators recognize that cultural initiatives must respond with more agility and alacrity to the realities of inequity, in all of its forms. How those responses are effectively enacted is a more complex set of questions. This conference will focus on the political potentials of care and compassion as practiced in the arts. Participants will reflect on the differences between hearing and actively listening, and between speaking with and speaking to, in a variety of art-centered exchanges.

How can we amplify inclusive, polyphonic narratives based on lived experiences, instead of the perceived authority of academic or fine arts expertise? How might art workers conceive of their role as facilitation for collaborations and conversations about justice taking place outside cultural institutions? Over two online sessions, we will explore creative, curatorial and activist projects focused on toppling hierarchies, empowering BIPOC voices, reimagining history, and centering the voices of historically marginalized authors and creators.  Hear more about cultural initiatives locally and internationally—making change now.

Information on conference program and participants.

This event is being presented virtually via Zoom.

Registration for Friday, 10/22
Registration for Saturday, 10/23
Please note: there are separate registration links for each day of the conference.

This event is sponsored by the Evelyn Danzig Haas ’39 Visiting Artists Program.
