MCA Educator Salon: Teacher as Conceptual Artist

Through an examination of contemporary art works that are recognized as primarily conceptual, this salon proposes the radical notion that a teacher's curricular and pedagogical practice(s) can also be their creative practice. Durational, performance, and socially-based artworks present a wider conceptual and even aesthetic language for a pedagogy/art hybrid practice. Jorge Lucero, Assistant Professor of Art Education at The University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, leads a panel of educators whose teaching practice is also their creative practice.
