David Kyle hosts Mondavi Event on Art and Migration

On January 31st, David Kyle moderated a panel on "Art and Migration" held at the Mondavi Center for Performing Arts as part of a week-long UC Davis series of events related to these themes. The guest panelists were Anthony Sheppard (musicologist and professor of music at Williams College), Maria Elena Gonza´lez (a Cuban-American sculptor), Philip Kan Gotanda (American playwright and filmmaker at UC Berkeley, as well as previous Granada Artist-in-Residence at UC Davis), Peter Kulchyski (Native Studies, University of Manitoba), and Chan Park (a Korean P’ansori expert and professor of Korean language, literature, and performance studies at Ohio State University). The penal explored themes of the common thematic foundations of freedom and imagination in art and migration, as well as the challenge of authenticity and hybridity as both art and people migrate and intersect in mercurial ways.
