Artist Talk: It Is What It Is: Conversations About Iraq
Complimentary breakfast. This discussion unites key participants in Jeremy Deller’s 2009 project about the war in Iraq, It Is What It Is: Conversations About Iraq, to reflect on how the engagement of the audience in the experience of art can transform one’s understanding of the world. Deller is joined by Esam Pasha, an Iraqi refugee, artist, and former translator; Jonathan Harvey, a veteran of the Iraq War; and Creative Time Chief Curator Nato Thompson. In partnership with Webster University.
