About this event

Join us for a symposium that coincides with World of Matter: Mobilizing Materialities, an exhibition and series of events that explore the ways that materials in the ground mobilize multi-scale geopolitics as well as social movements. This artistic and educational initiative is set against the backdrop of the Great Lakes region, an historical and contemporary hub of heavy industry, transport, and intensive material extraction. Exhibition runs September 14 - December 9, 2017.
