Each year the School of Art invites contemporary artists and scholars to present their research to the public, and conduct studio visits with our Fine Art students. These presentations are co-organized by faculty, staff and students in the Fine Arts Program, with the goal of sharing inspiring work by interdisciplinary practitioners at all stages of their careers, providing exposure to members of our community, and opportunities for kinship and connection. We welcome all members of the public to engage. All our lectures are free and open to the public. 


Experiments in Glitch 

For 2023/24 academic year, the School of Art Visiting Artists and Scholars committee created a topical focus for the presentations. Experiments in Glitch is a yearlong symposium that includes visiting artists, classroom workshops, faculty presentations, and a book reading list that encompasses queer performance art, science and technology in the arts, and nature in the arts through liminal processes, experiences, identities, and spaces. Join us for an inspiring lecture series celebrating new aesthetics. 


Glitch Feminism by Legacy Russell

 

Our community favorite, “Glitch Feminism” (2020), by curator, writer and author Legacy Russell, nominated by Assistant Professor Neil Daigle Orians, has our hearts racing!

We dedicate this year’s Lecture Series in her honor. Inspired by Glitch Feminism, we examine “fault lines, ruptures, places to hide, shifting media, fantastic landscapes, home, safety, and hopeful possibilities.” 

In solidarity,

Visiting Artist and Scholar Lecture Series Committee Members 

“The imaginative architecture of utopia remains ever present in glitch feminism. It gives us home and hope.”
