SAIC Faculty Member Joins Seminar at Biennale Bénin 2012

E-flux.com, the international online network from Artforum, announced SAIC faculty member Claire Pentecost (Photography) will join a three-day seminar at Biennale Bénin 2012: Inventing the World: the artist as citizen. Beginning November 4, Pentecost will participate in Recovering an Art School, part of the biennale’s extended Encountersprogram. Featuring a coalition of international artists and arts professionals, the three-day seminar aims to consider “how the role of the artist teacher creates an educational space against the background of discussions initiated by the National University of Benin about the format for a future formal art school.”
