Join us as graduate students and emerging voices come together for a wide-ranging conversation on the changing relations of home across time in visual art, culture, and design. Organized in conjunction with University of California, Berkeley, and Stanford University, this symposium highlights artistic expression and academic insights, examining community notions of home, displacement, belonging, safety, homelessness, prosperity, and related themes. Featuring an array of presenters from a variety of backgrounds, including a keynote address from New York University professor Finbarr Barry Flood, Not At Home showcases different perspectives and formats, encompassing gallery talks, performances, panel discussions, interviews, and research projects.

Organized in the 2016/2017 academic year by Danny Smith (Stanford University) and Jess Genevieve Bailey (University of California, Berkeley), the Berkeley/Stanford Symposium is an annual gathering of emerging voices in the arts. The symposia seek to support graduate students in all fields as well as young artists, museum professionals, and writers.
