The Center for Experimental Lectures is an artist’s project that provides a platform to engage with the public lecture as a format. The Center for Experimental Lectures commissions new lecture performances with hopes of providing occasions to focus on not only the content and format of each unique lecture but also the possibilities of the lecture as a creative platform.
