Turpin Lectures Tomorrow on the Anthropocene at Cranbrook Academy of Art

As the 2012 Visiting Critic for the second year graduate programs at Cranbrook Academy of Art, Taubman College part-time lecturer and University of Michigan Center for Southeast Asian Studies Research Fellow Dr. Etienne Turpin will begin his week-long visit to Cranbrook with a public lecture on his research on the aesthetics of the anthropocene. The lecture – Jimmie Durham in Lascaux, A Parable for Art in the Anthropocene – is co-sponored by the Cranbrook Academy of Art Critical Studies Program and the University of Detroit Mercy School of Architecture. The lecture also anticipates Dr. Turpin's intensive graduate design workshop – Repositioning Art & Aesthetics – at Cranbrook in February, 2013, when a select group of students from all art and design media will join Dr. Turpin for a week long inquiry regarding design research in the anthropocene.
