Art as Research, Research as Art: why I founded the Lobby Gallery at the Liu Institute for Global Issues
In this presentation, I will discuss the reasons behind the creation of the Lobby Gallery at the Liu Institute for Global Issues, and re-present some of the exhibitions presented there over the past four years. Attempting to encourage and showcase conversations between academic research and art, the gallery aims to expand the scope and impact of both; with the hope of creating and supporting communities of exchange and dialogue. I also question whether there is a line between art and research, and explore how both enact similar processes of inquiry and discovery.
