CFP - After Hope: Future Forms and Alternative Methods @ the Asian Art Museum, San Francisco

Location: Asian Art Museum, San Francisco

Dates: September 25-27, 2020

After Hope seeks to engage critical explorations of hope as an aesthetic and embodied experience. The prompt to think “after” hope is intended as a way to consider hope’s complex relationship to the future and the past. Through presentations and workshops focused on cultural, material, and technological expressions of hope, this interdisciplinary symposium aims to explore hope as a dynamic index of change. To do so, it asks what it means to go after hope and what comes after hope.
