USF Fall Lecture Series: Sensing the City - An Exploration of San Francisco through Sight and Sound
USF in the Presidio is sponsoring three fall lectures with the theme Sensing the City - An Exploration of San Francisco through Sight and Sound.
The first lecture is entitled:
Encountering History: Visual Culture and the Presence of Time at Fort Point
A Lecture by John Zarobell
Wednesday, September 19, 5 pm
University of San Francisco Assistant Professor of International Studies and Program Chair of European Studies John Zarobell will discuss International Orange, a public exhibition that employs contemporary art to interrogate and reflect upon our relationship to the history of Fort Point in the Presidio. Time is the method used by many of these contemporary artists to draw out the complexities involved in looking backwards and determining what this past might mean to us.
International Orange will be open from 10 am to 5 pm through September 30, 2012, and there will also be a guided tour with its curator, Cheryl Haines, on Tuesday, September 18, 2012, for individuals seeking more knowledge and insight regarding Fort Point and the exhibition.
