On March 15, Triple Canopy will begin a four-day teaching residency at Columbia College Chicago, where it will host a series of seminars and workshops as part of the Interdisciplinary Arts Department’s visiting artists program. On Thursday, March 15, senior editor Colby Chamberlain will deliver a lecture—free and open to the public—entitled “Publication in the Expanded Field,” which will be followed by a Q&A with editorial and program director Peter J. Russo and senior web developer Adam Florin.

During the residency Triple Canopy will work with students to investigate three core subject areas: the emergence of the page as a site for artworks in the media magazines of the 1960s; the Internet as a public forum and its attendant politics of authorship and identity; and contemporary artistic practices engaged with alternative forms of circulation.
