In the fall of 2018, internationally renowned artist Teresita Fernández will install Autumn (...Nothing Personal), a site‐specific work for Tercentenary Theatre commissioned by the Harvard University Committee on the Arts (HUCA). The installation, a reference to James Baldwin’s essay Nothing Personal, will unfold as both a physical site and as a space for public dialogue and performance.

The completion of this work requires the presence and agency of Harvard students, faculty, staff, and local communities. Meet the artist Teresita Fernández on Thursday, February 15 to propose ways of engaging with this public sculpture. How can this project amplify student voices? How can it form a space to take risks, rest and refuel, read, perform, gather, and debate?
