Convergent Cultures / Convergent Image examines communication through the visual arts from a global perspective. Bridging the arts of Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East, the three colloquium speakers will address the cross-cultural and cross-regional nature of visual heritage and consider how contemporary responses to visual culture and identity are centered in their historical roots.
