Visual Arts and Cultures


About

Activities in this cluster explore the material and social aspects of visual and cultural practices, examine the craft and interpretation of visual cultures, forms, and experiences across mediums, time periods, and contexts, and engage with diverse theories and practices tied to visual/cultural studies. Working group activities bridge diverse fields that include, but are not limited to: art history, visual rhetorics, museum studies, geography, film/cinema studies, art and design, media and popular culture, architecture, cultural anthropology, and bridge perceptual studies work in the humanities with fields such as neurobiology and psychology, for example.
