Dr. Lisa Cakmak, Curator at the Saint Louis Art Museum, speaking on "Inside an Art Museum: Career Opportunities beyond Curatorial"
April 9, 2013
Where: Room 204, Fine Arts Center
Time: 6:00 PM
One of the most high profile careers that many students often aspire to is that of museum curator. Curatorial positions in art museums are highly coveted but openings are few and far between and often (but not always) restricted to those holding a PhD. However, curatorial is only one small section of the inner workings of an art museum. There are many other divisions and areas, such as exhibition design, museum education, and collections management, where diverse backgrounds in studio art, art history and other liberal arts disciplines can be an advantage. This talk will highlight some of these opportunities in addition to sharing with students the speaker''s experience as a curatorial fellow at the Saint Louis Art Museum.

The Sublime Disruption: Art Hystories of Glitch
March 27, 2013
Where: 1101 Fine Arts Center
Time: 6:00 PM
This lecture attempts to shed some light and not a little noise on the cultural phenomenon of Glitch, considering it in the context of a discipline, art history, that has branched into multiple histories and undergone radical critiques of its models and hierarchies. As a constellation of practices and communities within contemporary techno-culture, Glitch operates both inside and outside the traditions of new media art. It draws on art historical practices of noise, chance, error and chaos and on cultural currents such as punk, media activism, and DIY technology. It both short-circuits and reconstructs the experience of the sublime. Using examples of glitch art, we hope to trace a network of ideas relevant to Glitch as art and attitude.
Paul Hertz is an independent artist and curator who teaches new media art history and studio courses at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He has worked with computers for nearly thirty years. His curatorial work includes "Imaging by Numbers" at the Mary and Leigh Block Museum, Northwestern University, 2008, a chronological survey of algorithmic art that established a significant digital print collection. In his art, he delights in code sourcery, intermedia, glitching and social interfaces. His work has been exhibited in many international media festivals and symposia.

7th Annual Symposium: New Perspectives in Visual Culture
March 23, 2013
Where: Room 204 Fine Arts Building
Time: 9:30 AM to 5:30 PM
The 2013 symposium will feature research presentations by eleven B.A. candidates from universities across the United States, including BGSU, St. Olaf''s College, University of Cincinnati, Allegheny College, University of Pennsylvania, and Ursuline College. The presenters were selected from a competitive pool of applicants who responded to a national call for papers for original research topics on any subject in art history. Papers that incorporated critical theory in their analyses of art and culture were especially welcome.
This year’s selected students will present papers in panels dedicated to the themes of the “Gaze,” “Metaphysicality,” “Materialism,” and “Environment.” The symposium will also feature a keynote address by Kenwyn Crichlow, Department of Festival and Caribbean Studies, of the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine Trinidad. Crichlow is a contemporary artist and scholar, and will offer a dual perspective of both academic and artist in his lecture. Registration for the symposium will open at 9:00 a.m. in the main lobby of the School of Art. Opening remarks will begin the symposium at 9:30 followed by the keynote address by Mr. Crichlow. Panels will begin at 11:00, 1:15, and 2:40, and 3:45 respectively. There will be a reception after.
