This spring the Department of Art History hosts an alternating series of lectures (G40 WJB) and tea with the faculty (2040 WJB) on Friday afternoons. All Art History grads, majors, and minors are welcome – bring a friend!
Friday, April 12: Dr. Tenley Bick will discuss how contemporary artists and art collectives in Italy, including Wu Ming, Invernomuto, and ZaLab, are using art as a form of cultural activism. Her talk will examine how these artists are calling attention to Italian colonialism and related histories as agents of racial violence in Italy and the present European migration crisis.
Friday, April 19: Join us in the Art & Design Library for a casual tea with the faculty.
