Since 1991, Dialogues in Art and Architecture has been a program of free public talks on the experimental edge of new art—particularly across disciplines—and architecture, addressing architectural design, urban planning, public culture, our changing ecology, and the artist’s perspective on these issues, as models of possibilities for the San Diego environment. The series consists of lectures by outstanding professionals of national/international reputation with art critic Robert Pincus as moderator.

 

Previous participants have included architects Kisho Kurokawa, Raoul Bunschoten, and Julie Eizenberg; artists Allan Kaprow, Allan Sekula, and Martha Rosler; writers and social historians David Antin, Mike Davis, and Kevin Starr; and scientists such as Jonas Salk.

 

The programs are underwritten through the Joyce Cutler-Shaw Endowment Fund.
