Culture Lab Detroit’s 2018 program, The Crisis of Beauty, will host luminary artists, critics, curators, architects, and scientists for a series of discussions about how their work harnesses, rejects, informs or complicates the aesthetic precept of beauty. Beauty’s elusive ability to be defined masks its influence on nearly all aspects of our lives. This program aims to explore how beauty intersects with multiculturalism, the intricacies of gentrification, gender politics, and unbounded assimilation of technology to offer novel or previously suppressed perspectives.
