Every year the Visual and Critical Studies community comes together to celebrate the new and evolving work being done by the program's faculty members and alumni in the field of visual and critical studies.
At this annual event, brief so-called reports from the field are delivered by select community members. Following each presentation is a round of Q&A that engages and inquires of many aspects of the professional and creative processes implicit to this robust and innovative field.
Each year this outstanding showcase of work impresses the interdisciplinary extensions of VCS coursework into a vast arena of project-based works, research, and collaborations.
