221A is happy to introduce Josh Gabert-Doyon and Yu Su as the society’s inaugural Fellows who are participants in “Notes on Permanent Education (N.O.P.E.)”. Taking its name from a revolutionary poster circulated during the May ‘68 student uprising in Paris, half a century later, the slogan is a question and a charge: What does the demand for permanent education mean today? And what is the role of artists and students in creating a new society? Convened by 221A’s Librarian, Vincent Tao, the fellows will be centered on these questions, unfolding into a series of study programs and live events.
