CRITICAL THEORY DISCOURSE
brings together DVAA members to tackle challenging works of art theory and history led by DVAA Exhibitions & Programming Director, Bryant Girsch.
Have you always wanted a group to think through critical art theory with you? This is the group for you. Discuss short readings (that you read ahead of time) which are pertinent to the historical progression of how key players in the western “Art World” have shaped art.
Critical Theory Discourse is $10 for Premium Members, $15 for General Members, and includes wine and light refreshments.
