The Berkeley/Stanford Symposium is an annual gathering of emerging voices in the arts organized by graduate students at Stanford and UC Berkeley.

The 2023 Berkeley/Stanford Symposium, “In-Between: Art and Cultural Practices From Here,” confronts the potentials of those people, spaces, things, ideas, and experiences of the past, present, and future, as they manifest between categories of analysis we might have inherited from previous canons. Situating the symposium within the conceptual space of the “in-between,” we ask our participants to join in proposing new frameworks of hybridity and transdisciplinarity. These approaches are grounded in transregional and intersectional practices that, nonetheless, engage with specificities of place.

This symposium will take place on Friday, April 28th from 10am - 5pm at the SFMOMA, and is free and open to the public.

In-Between: Art and Cultural Practices From Here is organized by Alexandra Adams (Stanford), Josh Feng (Berkeley), Andrea Jung-An Liu (Berkeley), Maria Shevelkina (Stanford), and Sofia Silva (Stanford).
