Photographs by Corcoran School of the Arts and Design student Matailong Du, (MA New Media Photojournalism ’17), artfully document the production of Margin, a dance performed by the Dana Tai Soon Burgess Dance Company at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in October 2016. As the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery’s first choreographer-in-residence, Dana Tai Soon Burgess (GW Professor of Dance) transformed six portraits from the Smithsonian Institution’s Outwin 2016 American Portraiture Today exhibition into dance. Matailong Du’s captivating photographs portray the movement of the dancers in Margin and their interaction with artwork in the galleries during preparation for their performance. The exhibit also includes statements by Dana Tai Soon Burgess and Amy Henderson, (Historian Emerita, The National Portrait Gallery), documenting the collaboration.

NEXT Thesis Exhibition   ( 12:00 AM Apr 12 - 12:00 AM May 21 )
The NEXT thesis exhibition is the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design's annual celebration of the brilliance and promise of its students. Each degree program at the Corcoran requires students to successfully complete a thesis project and then collaborate with other programs to to present a building-wide exhibition in the Corcoran's many gallery spaces. Theses may take many forms—from written research papers to a series of paintings—they all represent a culmination of a student's learning experiences at the Corcoran and a glimpse of future promise. Students exhibit their theses on the walls of the Corcoran School and present pictorial and oral presentations of their projects to an audience of their peers, faculty and the George Washington University community. Held every spring, NEXT is a dynamic, interactive and innovative thesis show located in the Corcoran's historic Flagg Building. NEXT gives D.C.’s art community the opportunity to see the latest in contemporary art from fresh perspectives. Visitors to NEXT have the unique opportunity to observe thesis critiques and discussions between students and faculty and to gain insight into the visual form-making process. This year's exhibition will be on view April 12 through May 21.

Collaborative teams can benefit from using a variety of emerging technologies. In this University Seminar event, colleagues from across the GWU campus will examine the roles for collaborative technologies in our work, and how we can best structure our teams to utilize these resources. Collaborative technologies for sense-making, project management, learning and knowledge sharing, and collaborative data analysis will all be explored during the symposium. Since most collaboration begins with informal conversations, following the panel discussion there will also be time to share experiences with your colleagues. The C3@GWU University Seminar is funded through the GWU Office of the Provost.

GW Philosophy Department Presents: 2017 Thacher Lecture by Susanna Schellenberg Perceptual Consciousness as a Mental Activity "I argue that perceptual consciousness is constituted by a mental activity. The mental activity in question is the activity of employing perceptual capacities, such as discriminatory, selective capacities. This is a radical view, but I hope to make it plausible. In arguing for this mental activist view, I reject orthodox views on which perceptual consciousness is analyzed in terms of (sensory awareness relations to) peculiar entities, such as, phenomenal properties, external mind-independent properties, propositions, sense-data, qualia, or intentional objects." Bio: Susanna Schellenbergis a philosopher who specializes in epistemology, philosophy of mind, and philosophy of language. She is best known for her work on perceptual experience, evidence, capacities, mental content, and imagination. She is professor of philosophy at Rutgers University where she holds a secondary appointment at the Rutgers Center for Cognitive Science. In 2016, she was awarded the Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Award of the Humboldt Foundation. She has been published in journals such as Nos, The Journal of Philosophy, Mind, and Philosophy and Phenomenological Research.
