April 8, 2017 (All day)
San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA)
151 3rd St, San Francisco, CA 94103

Free and open to the public.

The inaugural Berkeley/Stanford Symposium will be held at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) on April 8, 2017. Not at Home is an opportunity to discuss how visual material has registered changing relations to home over time. Papers, panels, and performance pieces speak to how home and its opposites – displacement, estrangement, voyage, or exile – manifest in visual expression and material culture throughout history.

Delighted to announce, keynote will be Finbarr Barry Flood, William R. Kenan Jr. Professor of the Humanities, Institute of Fine Arts and College of Arts and Sciences, New York University.

The Berkeley/Stanford Symposium is a new annual gathering of emerging voices in the arts.
