Please join us Thursday, November 9th from 6:00-9:00pm for our annual Graduate Open Studios event!
Open Studios is an opportunity for the public to meet the next generation of artists at UB. Students in UB’s graduate programs in Art and Media Study invite the public into their studios to engage with their work on more intimate terms. This year’s event is distributed throughout the Center for the Arts on North Campus, and includes a program of film screenings and performances throughout the evening. We’re aiming to create a dynamic event that attracts members of the local arts community as well as the public at large and introduces the incredible work our graduates are making to a broad and diverse audience.

Art, Politics, and Cities in Transition
Symposium organized by Purchase College and
CLUSTER (Cairo Lab for Urban Studies, Training, and Environmental Research)
Art, politics and cities in transition is a two-day symposium that explores the role of art and creative industries in urban regeneration.
Organized by Purchase College, State University of New York and CLUSTER (Cairo Lab for Urban Studies, Training, and Environmental Research), the symposia looks to several international and local case studies in an effort to examine the politics of urban revitalization and its relationship to gentrification, securitization, real estate development, while exploring how artists, designers, activists imagine oppositional alternatives to culture-driven economic development.
Featuring speakers from a range of fields (art, architecture, urban planning, ecology, economics, political science, education), the program at the Center for Architecture will report on earlier exchanges organized by CLUSTER in Cairo, while opening new avenues of debate regarding the impact of art and creative industries on their surrounding neighborhoods and local communities; urgent challenges to public space in times of conflict and climate chaos; and the potential of creative place making.
