In the 2015-2016 School of Art Visiting Artists and Scholars Lecture Series, “Shifting/Ground: Visual Art in the Age of Global Transition,” internationally recognized artists and scholars will address contemporary social and political issues within the richness of aesthetic experience. Speakers will demonstrate how art practice and scholarship can produce critical awareness in an age fraught with challenges such as the destabilization of international economic markets, widespread social uprising, and increased competition for natural resources.

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. Gallagher, Jr. Memorial Endowment, the School of Art Advisory Board Visiting Artists and Scholars Endowment, the School of Art, the College of Fine Arts Dean’s Fund for Excellence, and the Center for Creative Photography.
