Venue: University of Arizona Museum of Art Retablo Gallery
Start Time: 9:00am

One of only 30 symposia in the country and the oldest of its kind, the 32nd annual University of Arizona Art History Symposium is organized and led by graduate students.

This year’s symposium, “Natural/Unnatural,” will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday, March 15, in the Retablo Gallery of the University of Arizona Museum of Art (UAMA), 1031 N. Olive Road. The keynote speaker will be John-Michael H. Warner, an associate Art History professor at Kent State University trained in gender and women’s studies.

Natural talent, natural materials, natural world. In the study of the visual arts, these phrases are frequently used. However, what does ‘natural’ really mean? As recent trends in decolonization, feminist theory, critical race theory, and other disciplines have called into question commonly held assumptions and value judgements, the symposium seeks to call attention to the binaries, inherent biases, assumptions, policies and practices created through such terminology.

In coordination with the symposium, the School of Art’s Art History Graduate Student Association (AHGSA) also will be holding the “Natural/Unnatural” art exhibition from March 12-22 in the Palo Verde Gallery, 1231 N. Fremont Ave, with the same theme and is currently seeking submissions. Students can learn more about the required submission materials, and email their materials as attachments to Sarah Greenwell-Scott.
