In a free, public event the Intradisciplinary Seminar welcomes the House of Ladosha, a collective exploration of the “house” philosophy popularized by ballroom culture. As a group of like-minded artists, including Antonio Blair (or Dosha Devastation) and Adam Radakovich (Cunty Crawford), they explore conceptual and social constructs and relate to them via their individual ethnic, racial, sexual and gender identities. The house puts self expression via social media on the same level as more traditional mediums including photography, video, painting, music and performance.
The Intradisciplinary Seminar, sponsored by the The Cooper Union School of Art, presents a series of free, public lectures reflecting a broad range of contemporary art issues. Speakers include artists, writers, and thinkers currently engaged in a variety of practices. The emphasis is on interdisciplinary approaches, presenting new voices, international perspectives and scholarship across multiple fields. The series constitutes a lively forum for the exchange of ideas between practitioners, students, faculty and the public.
The Fall 2016 Intradisciplinary Seminar is part of the Robert Lehman Visiting Artist Program at The Cooper Union. We are grateful for major funding support from the Robert Lehman Foundation.
Located in the Frederick P. Rose Auditorium, at 41 Cooper Square (on Third Avenue between 6th and 7th Streets)
