MICA’s MIXED MEDIA series brings high-profile, globally recognized artists, designers, scholars, curators and educators working at the forefront of their fields to MICA’s campus for public talks, in-class presentations, studio critiques and other immersive activities with students and the community. The aim of the MIXED MEDIA series is to build important and imaginative public events that address the diversity of practice in our fields and the complex relationships between art, culture, identity, politics, and belonging in the contemporary world.
