As a complement to the varied exhibition program at the Turchin Center, ARTtalks are led by exhibiting artists, scholars and practitioners. Each talk provides deeper insight into creative practice, context for current exhibitions or contemporary issues shaping the world in which art is created, experienced and interpreted. ARTtalks are free and open to the public.

Cara Hagan, guest curator and Associate Professor, Dance Studies at Appalachian State University will join with Jennie Carlisle, Director of the Smith Gallery and faculty with the Art department at Appalachian State University and Wabwila Mugala both of whom are collaborating artists in the My Place, or Yours? exhibition. They will discuss the politics and practice of collaborative work employing the practice of artistic surrogacy
