Art and Visual Culture

Posted on November 27, 2020

The “Arts and Visual Cultures” research seminar brings together LARCA members, scholars, and PhD students 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…). The seminar interfaces with the other LARCA research clusters. Its dynamic is set through collaborations and collective discussions taking place within the group’s seminar.

The “Art and Visual Culture” seminar takes place on Monday from 5 to  7, room 830, Olympe de Gouges building, unless otherwise indicated, and on Zoom for those who cannot join.
