Inland Symposium: CST—the third annual symposium event co-sponsored by the Inland Visual Studies Center—will take place April 12-13, 2012, at the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis.
This year's symposium, titled CST: Central Standard Time, will look at cultural production in the Midwest and examine its contribution to the nation's art and visual culture, challenging the notion that the "CST territories" consist primarily of consumers, as opposed to creative/productive classes. Participants will discuss the impact of the history of the Midwest—including economy, sociology, geography, and even climatology—on visual culture "between the coasts."
This exhibit—curated by Lauren Adams, Richard Krueger, and Monika Weiss—features works by MFA students in the Sam Fox School's Graduate School of Art. The title taken from a short story by William H. Gass, the David May Distinguished University Professor Emeritus in the Humanities at Washington University. For more information please visit: http://sfac.wustl.edu/events/symposia/6617
