End Date: 5/2/2017End Time: 6:00 PM

Event Description:
Joel Slayton: Transition To honor Professor Joel Slayton's last semester teaching at SJSU, he will have a conversation with Metro columnist Gary Singh regarding the relationship of art and innovation, creative research, and what it all may or may not mean.

Slayton also recently retired as Executive Director of ZERO1, after having developed it into one of the most significant art and technology festivals in North America. A visionary leader, he has continually promoted new ways to showcase the work of groundbreaking artists who reflect and comment on the world around them, in so doing building partnerships with industry, academia, and government at a scale not previously attempted in this valley. Former Director of SJSU's prestigious Cadre Lab, Slayton is a pioneering artist in his own right as well, exploring and disrupting the boundaries between art and technology.

About the Thompson Gallery: An acclaimed weekly lecture series brings in artists, designers, and critical theorists from around the world, broadening the students’ experiential base and complementing local offerings.
