The 2016/2017 VASE series investigates the role of visual art in a period characterized by the exponential speed of change in technology, globalization and climate. Four internationally acclaimed speakers will present diverse insights into our current cultural condition through intersections between: society and media technology, geopolitics and the individual, and the spatial and environmental conditions of race. These presentations and conversations will explore the power of the visual arts to increase awareness and understanding of our world in flux.
All lectures held in the Center for Creative Photography Auditorium, Room 108.
The School of Art Visiting Artists and Scholars lecture series is made possible by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Edward J.
