Lecture by Professor David Wood: 29th September 2011

> Thursday, 29 September at 4 p.m.
> Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, Hope Park Square
> Lecture by Professor David Wood (W. Alton Jones Professor of Philosophy, Professor of European Studies, and Professor of Art, Vanderbilt University):
> "Is it Time for Art?"
> Abstract: "Does art does still matter, or is it, in terms of any real significance, as Hegel said, 'a thing of the past'? I argue that the major challenges of our time are tied up with the aporias of representation that art is especially equipped to help us think through."
