Professor Susette Min is an Associate Professor at the University of California, Davis and an independent curator. Prior to joining the faculty at UC Davis, she was Associate Curator at The Drawing Center, NYC. Her critically acclaimed first book, “Unnamable: The Ends of Asian American Art,” centers attention on the categorical imperatives of Asian American Art. Currently, she is working on a new book project focused on exhibition-making, immigration, and terrorism—as well as an exhibition on radical self-care with her students at UC Davis.
Bennington College’s Spring 2021 Visual Arts Lecture Series continues the theme of “Race, Representation, and Contemporary Art in the Age of Black Lives Matter.” This framework for conversations with historians and artists whose work is deeply invested in questions of (political) representation, race, sexuality, gender, and class within the anti-racist praxes and historical and cultural awareness of the Black Lives Matter movement.
“Now is an ideal moment to experience, even remotely, art and scholarship that deepens our individual and collective understandings of what it means to be, or not to be, represented,” said Visual Art faculty member Vanessa Lyon, Professor of Art History and Director of VALS.
All lectures are free, open to the public, and will take place virtually over Zoom from 7:00-8:00 PM on Tuesday evenings.
