Dubai based Art Gallery Cuadro on April 11 at 7:00 pm will host an interesting discussion Censorship in the Arts: Why Does it Matter? with in-house educator, Roberto Lopardo.
People across civilizations have constructed elaborate rituals that attempt to promote or demote certain forms of thinking. Trying to control societal perception is as old as humanity itself. This lecture take the audience through a short selected list of artworks that have been censored in the past and asks the audience to engage in a rational and structured dialogue as to why these works were censored and the results of the censorship.

He carries a Master of Fine Arts from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), a teaching certificate from Brown University, and a Bachelor of Arts in Politics and Philosophy from Whitman College. Lopardo has previously taught at the Arizona School for the Deaf and Blind, Diné College, the Rhode Island School of Design, and the University of Arizona. He is the former Dean of Visual Communications and Professor of Photography at the American University in Dubai.
