Undoing Time Roundtable: Critical Witnessing

​​Join Vice Provost and Professor Tiffany Lopez in a roundtable discussion about "critical witnessing." This is a term Dr. Lopez coined to describe the process of stepping into a space of personal and/or social transformation as the direct result of experiencing a work of art that brings clarity that one is part of the continuum of the work. Critical witnessing is the experience of seeing a work of art and realizing you do not want to directly participate in or indirectly perpetuate the history of violence and trauma in an artwork. The experience of the work brings a shift from passive viewer to active witness with critical awareness, emerging toward a path of change. Dr. Lopez will explore the exhibition "Undoing Time: Art and Histories of Incarceration" with this lens, informed by her personal experience teaching prison narratives and art about incarceration while visiting prisons.
