Our community partners at Charis Books and More will welcome Professor Katherine Smith in conversation with Susanneh Bieber on Monday, March 1 at 7:30 pm. Smith’s groundbreaking study of the sculptor Claes Oldenburg culminates in her first book, The Accidental Possibilities of the City: Claes Oldenburg’s Urbanism in Postwar America, published by the University of California Press.
Smith’s research projects have probed intersections in American art and architecture from the 1960s to the present, with emphases on sculpture and urbanism. She has taught courses in modern and contemporary art and architecture since 2003. Her approach to teaching draws directly on the interdisciplinary nature of her research, which focuses on thinking across media. Her courses demonstrate how the skills and content of art history can help us respond to and intervene in our current landscapes—geographical, political, cultural, and intellectual.
