In May 2016 Paula Gaetano-Adi (Assistant Professor, Experimental and Foundation Studies) presented at two conferences in South America.

The first in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Gaetano Adi was invited to speak at the First Conference on Aesthetic and Decolonial Thinking organized by the Universidad Nacional de Avellaneda (UNDAV) and Duke University (Globalization and the Humanities Project). The conference was designed as an open forum with guest artist and thinkers from across the Americas to discuss the limits and possibilities of a ‘decolonial aesthesis’ and the liberation of art from its eurocentric condition.

In Manizales, Colombia, Gaetano Adi participated in a panel on Robotics and Ecologies at Balance-Unbalance (BunB), an international conference designed to use art as a catalyst to explore intersections between nature, science, technology and society as we move into an era of both unprecedented ecological threats and transdisciplinary possibilities. The Balance-Unbalance conference brings artists together with scientists, economists, philosophers, politicians, management and policy experts, sociologists and engineers from across the world with the intent of engendering a deeper awareness and creating lasting intellectual working partnerships in solving our global environmental crisis.
