Encountering: The Conceptual Body, or a Theory of When, Where, and How Art “Means” Other events...
A public lecture by Amelia Jones, the Robert A. Day Professor, Roski School of Art and Design, University of Southern California.

In this lecture, Professor Jones will argue that, from our current point of view, in which we are rethinking the value of the radical rights movements of the 1960s and 1970s, the most complex and productive works in this period crossed over conceptual and embodied concerns in ways that began to transform the basic question of art’s value, meaning, significance, and role in society. Attending to the tensions among concept, body, event, and “art” that surface around 1960 in the Western world is thus the most effective way to understand how art becomes “event” in the sense of potentially shifting larger ways of thinking and being.
