UCLA Art History Graduate Symposium 2016 - Killing Time: Temporality in Visual Culture

Please join us for the 2016 UCLA Art History Graduate Symposium entitled “Killing Time: Temporality in Visual Culture” on Saturday, October 22, 2016.  The symposium is inspired, in part, by the upcoming 2017 Getty initiative, Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, whose organizing principle assumes that time is a unifying factor across geographic and national borders. Latin America and Los Angeles operate “on the same time,” but what does that mean?

In the nation’s oldest student-organized art history symposium, join emerging scholars at the Hammer Museum from 9:30 am – 5:00 pm with a special keynote address by Dylan Miner, Director of American Indian and Indigenous Studies at Michigan State University.  Click here to visit the symposium website, and here for more info about visiting the Hammer!
