Curtis L. Carter Art and Social Change Lecture
Tomás Saraceno in dialogue with Dr. Somesh Roy
Thursday, March 30, 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.
Presented via Zoom
Join internationally renowned artist Tomás Saraceno and “historian of soot” Dr. Somesh Roy, assistant professor of mechanical engineering at Marquette University, for a conversation about the air pollutant black carbon (aka soot), its impacts on climate change and public health, and the creative ways that artists and scientists are working together to inspire a more conscientious coexistence with the atmosphere.
This program is presented in collaboration with the Midwest Art History Society annual conference.
Community partners and resident action groups have collaboratively selected Milwaukee neighborhoods in which AirWalks will take place. During these interactive walks, thought partners will lead and co-facilitate a dialogue about each neighborhood—with an emphasis on the impacts of industrialization on air quality and public health. Dr. Somesh Roy will provide air filter sensors during each AirWalk that will collect site-specific air quality data in real time. Those readings will be converted into data visualizations that will be displayed in the interpretive space accompanying the exhibition Tomás Saraceno: Entangled Air.
Wednesday, April 12: Menomonee River Valley (5:30 - 7 pm)
Saturday, May 6: Pulaski Park (1:00 - 2:30 pm)
Thursday, April 27: pARTy at the Museum (5 - 8pm)

This FREE evening is presented in collaboration with Marquette University Radio, Marquette University Students for an Environmentally Active Campus Club (SEAC), Milwaukee Public Library, Marquette University Art Club, Plastic Free MKE, and Dr. Somesh Roy, Marquette University assistant professor of mechanical engineering.
