The Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art


Join the Alternator Centre in an open discussion about the borrowing of cultural imagery.

When is it okay, and who has the right? Where are the ethical limits? What is appreciation and what is “ripping off”? Qualities and boundaries of cultural appropriation will be up for debate. Speakers and listeners alike are invited to our open forum on July 11th.

Lucas Glenn, the Alternators summer student, will profile artists that are dealing with the subject. Controversial events, from the “Navajo Hipster” clothing line to the Victoria’s Secret Headdress dispute, will be open for debate as well. All knowledge and opinion is welcome!
