What do aesthetics have to do with legibility?

What goes into being believed?

What are the material benefits of being believable?

Aesthetics play a large role in how we make decisions about what is believable and what isn’t. Being believed has political and material benefits. Join Alok Vaid-Menon, Fallon Simard and Barak adé Soleil in conversation with Whippersnapper Gallery’s Director of Programming Joshua Vettivelu as they explore some of the ways power is bestowed, upheld and named through aesthetic legibility.

FACE VALUE is the third installment of Whippersnapper Gallery’s Conversation Series and will be presented at the Art Gallery of Ontario as part of the Creative Time Summit.

To attend this conversation registration to the summit is required and encouraged, however, no one will be turned away (space permitting on a first come- first served basis).
