Announcing the first Colloquium on Critical Media PracticeJoin us for the first Colloquium on Critical Media Practice. Through workshops, screenings, presentations and panel discussions, this colloquium will investigate the increasing overlap between art, engagement and nonfiction in the current technological landscape. 

Internationally renowned media practitioner and theorist Trinh T. Minh-ha will present her latest film and speak on her research and practice. Trinh’s work addresses gender politics as related to culture, post-coloniality, contemporary critical theory and the arts. 

MTL Collective (Nitasha Dhillon and Amin Husain) are artist/activists who engage with contemporary issues across platforms, joining research, aesthetics and activism in media arts practice. 

MTL will present their creative work and lead a student/faculty workshop on Interactive Cultural Landscapes. Working with images, videos and sounds generated by CU students from the Department of Critical Media Practices and the Department of Art and Art History, workshop participants will learn how to construct web-based interactive image collages to explore cultures of Colorado’s front range, using photography, video and sound.
