Understanding Expression

By: Kelly Trager  

This discussion will center on how to answer the question "What does this piece mean to me?" for viewers of contemporary art by: identifying common roadblocks to engagement, encouraging the confidence of instinct and the power of the individual lens built from cumulative personal knowledge and experience, reconciling the viewer's story and the artist's story, and sharing those interpretations with others.
