“Art in Crisis”

School of Art, 32 Edgewood Ave., New Haven, CT, 06511   Map

Artists Lizzy DeVita and Allyn Hughes Speak about Critical Practice.

Many artists are considering the limits of their practice in the face of recent political, social and economic turmoil. Many in our culture view art as a luxury, perhaps because it is one thing that is not based on a bottom-line mentality. This multimedia lecture/performance considers ways in which a person might contend with situations of crisis. In this multi-media lecture/performance, we will think critically about the term crisis, and how to evaluate our positions within a crisis situation through interdisciplinary vantage points.

Allyn Hughes is a designer in New York City.

Lizzy De Vita is an artist, writer and discussion curator who lives and works in Brooklyn.


Yale School of Art invites artists, critics, academics and cultural practitioners throughout each semester to speak about a wide variety of topics and to conduct studio visits with our graduate students.

Lectures are free and open to the public. Each event takes place at 6:30PM and at E.I.K., 32 Edgewood Avenue, unless otherwise noted.

Open to: General public
