The Dialogue Lab presents - Invisible Men and Women: A 24-Hour Reading Festival from the Fourth World
by Olon Dotson and Wes Janz
Tuesday, February 11 at 8am - Wednesday, February 12 at 8am
Kansas City based artist Sean Starowitz works with communities as an agent for public engagement and has transformed the Hanover College Greiner Art Gallery as a satellite site for The Dialogue Lab, a collaborative research space. In collaboration with The Madison Art Academy and the Madison Area Arts Alliance, The Dialogue Lab will be the site for a 24-Hour Reading Festival by Olon Dotson and Wes Janz. Olon and Wes are Architecture Professors at Ball State University. Their primary research and professional practice focus on urban revitalization and global citizenship - perfect additions to The Dialogue Lab.
Olon’s paper “Fourth World Theory: The Evolution of …” will be included in a special issue of Buildings journal titled “Designing Spaces for City Living” as edited by Sharon Sutton of the University of Washington. He offers a Fourth World Theory seminar in the Department of Architecture and is completing a PhD at Purdue University. In 2013, Wes’ book Leftover Rightunder: Finding Architectural Potential in Found Materials was published by Half Letter Press and his profile was among ten featured in Ken Banks’ The Rise of the Reluctant Innovator, which includes a foreword by Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
This activity has been made possible, in part, with support from the Indiana Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
