AHVA BFA/BA Graduating Exhibition

APRIL 19 – 26

Opening Wednesday, April 18

Audain Art Centre


The Department of Art History, Visual Art and Theory (AHVA) comprises 23 full-time members of faculty (including 13 art historians and 10 visual artists), eleven staff members, and a number of sessional instructors, adjunct professors, post-doctoral fellows, and associates of the department.

The department comprises three streams of research-based learning and practice:

  • Art History (ARTH), with a focus on theoretical and critical discourses (at both undergraduate and graduate levels) concerning the social impact of art and visual representation;
  • Critical and Curatorial Studies (CCST), examining issues in contemporary visual culture and display through research and exhibition projects; and
  • Visual Art (VISA), focusing on art production and academic learning, with a graduate emphasis on preparation for the field of contemporary international art.

The department’s faculty is actively involved in research, and many of our graduates have established distinguished careers in the creative, scholarly, and gallery fields.

The main goals of AHVA are to foster critical and reflexive thinking within an inclusive and supportive environment, to be innovative in pedagogy, and to be international in scholarly perspective.
