Yasha Rozov: Sight Specific
Looking at the role of the creative practitioner as determined by the site of artistic or design led intervention.
Please join us for a guest lecture by interdisciplinary Artist & Designer Yasha Rozov, jointly organized by Professor Jenny Sabin (Architecture) and Professor Itai Cohen (Physics) as part of the M.S. MDC program.
Yasha Rozov will discuss the transformational power of site-specific and socially engaged art practices in changing perceptions and experiences of public spaces and their communities. He will present projects which provoked him to redefine his identity as a creative practitioner — from designer to socially engaged artist to curator.
