A Visual Art Working Group will be meeting recurringly this semester and is open to faculty, researchers, graduate students, and area scholars interested in collaborative and interdisciplinary exploration of visual arts topics within a broad Southwest Asian and North African (SWANA) territory.

The opening them is "materials" - the lives, properties, histories (extractive, social, cultural, psychological) of materials in visual work, including potentialities for form-taking and form-making. We will share work, visit objects and places together, and build a community of inquiry arounds studies of visual material.

Organizing faculty include Dr. Persis Berlekamp, Dr. Asma Kazmi, and Dr. Anneka Lenssen.
