Embodied Values: Art as Personal/Social Witness
    In the spring of 2017, AISP classes responded to two exhibitions at The Print Center: Rebecca Gilbert: wonder and Daily Life: Photography from Lithuania. The curriculum examined the depictions of everyday life offered by the Lithuanian photographers contrasted with Gilbert’s idiosyncratic representations of her discoveries during her travels in a remote area of New Mexico. Students were encouraged to examine the ways that capturing the fleeting, invisible and mundane parts of life can reveal a great deal about what both individuals and the larger society value. Just as the minutiae of our daily lives can reveal a great deal about us, so can our departures into the unknown.
