Visual Arts Lecture Series (VALS) (VA2999.02)

J. Vanessa Lyon

Each term, Bennington offers a program of five-six lectures by emerging and illustrious visiting artists, curators, and historians who demonstrate the diversity of contemporary art practices. Toward a broader knowledge of various disciplines in the Visual Arts and to stimulate campus dialogue around topical issues related to inclusion, representation, and identity each thematic series offers students the opportunity to explore visual culture from multiple perspectives over the course of the term. Students registered for this series must attend all lectures on Tuesday evenings at 7:00pm and are responsible for taking notes and completing a one-page essay-questionnaire for each event to be submitted via Populi. Optional readings and additional opportunities for engagement with visiting speakers may be announced throughout the term.
