Rebekah Modrak: Visiting Artist at University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

Rebekah Modrak will give a talk on contemporary uses and mis-uses of the terms “community,” “craft,” and “labor” at the School of Art + Design / University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.

The talk will present her creative interventions and publications that challenge uncritical misconceptions that “labor” and “community” are consumable experiences, and that “craft” is the domain of the leisure class. As part of her visit, Modrak will hold a brown-bag lunch with graduate students.

Hosted by the Youth in the Creative Cities Research Cluster, the talk is supported by the Illinois Program for Research in the Humanities and will be held on Monday, May 2, 2016, 5pm in the School of Art + Design Building.
