Engine for Art, Democracy and Justice: Love Transmutation, Episode 7
Initiated by Dr. María Magdalena Campos-Pons as part of her appointment as the Cornelius Vanderbilt Endowed Chair and Professor of Fine Arts, “Engine for Art, Democracy and Justice” (EADJ) is a platform for creative and social exploration that takes visual representation as a focus for developing new knowledge and new practices.

Dr. Campos-Pons has invited Marina Fokidis as the Program Curator for the Fall 2020 program, "Living in Common in the Precarious South(s)," which discusses four themes over eight virtual conversations with the objective of exploring creative approaches to living together in the South(s).

EADJ’s seventh episode will look at the viral pandemic in terms of connectivity, migration, and how internal vulnerability manifests itself externally. While public rhetoric portrays COVID-19 as a foreign invader, the virus itself is not an agent. It doesn’t invade us; we make decisions, or do not, through our human connections. With art, driven by love, we can adjust how these connections are made.

Participants will include:
Moderator: Lorenzo F. Candelaria, Martha Rivers Ingram Dean's Chair Professor of Musicology, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, US

Speakers:
- T Bone Burnett, Record producer, musician, songwriter, Nashville, US
- Paul Kwami, Director, Fisk University Jubilee Singers, Nashville, US
- Dina Bennett, Curatorial Director, National Museum of African American Music, Nashville, US

Artist intervention: Pauchi Sasaki, Composer of classical experimental music, Peru (composer of the music for this year’s program)
