Too Close: The Ethics of Displaying Art in the Era of #MeToo

Sunday, September 8, 3 pm 


When high-profile artists are accused of sexual misconduct, how should the art world respond?  Inspired by CENTURY's Chuck Close photograph of Lorna Simpson, and John Berger’s provocative claim that “looking is a political act," we explore the ethics of promoting work by high-profile artists embroiled in the #MeToo controversy. Join us in a conversation with Jaime Ahlberg, UF Assistant Professor of Philosophy, and Jillian Hernandez, UF Assistant Professor of Gender Studies about the complexities of this issue, ranging from the relationship between artists and their work to the responsibilities of museums and art enthusiasts in showing, interpreting, and praising works of art.

Transcultural Engagements

(during Museum Nights: Noche de Museo) 



María Rogal, Professor of Graphic Design and Heidi Powell, Assistant Professor of Art Education will discuss how collaborations in Guatemala (Powell) and México (Rogal) provide rich opportunities to explore complexity through a transcultural lens. Both Rogal and Powell are affiliate faculty in the Center for Latin American Studies and find commonalities in their approaches, which emphasize a profound respect for the people they co-create with, their cultures and knowledges, and how they can shape and understand identity through art and design practice. For this conversation, they seek to foster dialogue about place, identity, representation, and creative practice.

The Potential of Fragments and Loose Threads

Sean Miller, Associate Professor of Sculpture and Bethany Taylor, Associate Professor of Drawing discuss the ontological and ecological ideas that fuel their work. Might temporal approaches to art making inform our understanding of the natural world and human nature? Miller and Taylor will introduce the gathered fragments and connected threads in their work(s) as systems for mapping impermanence and generating a nuanced understanding of our world (and beyond). This conversation is offered in conjunction with the 53rd SA+AH Studio Faculty Art Exhibition.
