Discoursed and Discussed

During each residency season, Amant hosts a discursive event that departs from the overall interests of the artists in residence and that also resonates with Amant’s artistic programming. Each of these events features a presentation by an artist and/or scholar who further articulates a particular line of thought and investigation that is relevant to our contemporary moment.
