Art and Visual Culture


The Visual Culture group includes LARCA members whose research projects focus on the arts and visual cultures of the English-speaking worlds. The research conducted in this context combines historical as well as aesthetic approaches, and includes still as well as time-based media: painting, photography, film, television, sculpture, video, VR…

Alongside visual forms and creative practices, questions of circulation and reception are addressed in relation to the institutional context (museums, galleries, festivals, foundations, digital platforms…). Visual Culture interfaces with the other LARCA research clusters. Its dynamic is set through collaborations and collective discussions taking place within specific seminars such as “Imaginaires Contemporains”.
