DESCRIPTION

The A&V seminar of the Honors College at FIU examines the vital role visual art plays in the social and cultural dialogue surrounding controversial issues. It investigates how artists have challenged or enforced authority by creating new aesthetics. It further explores how art is used to initiate, accelerate, or combat social change. The heart of the course is the A&V exhibition. This annual project provides students with the opportunity to demonstrate their resourcefulness and creativity through the research, curation, and organization of an exhibition of contemporary Miami artists. This year's artists include Roberto Behar & Rosario Marquadt, Robert Chambers, Luis García-Nerey, Jiae Hwang, Kuhl And Leyton, Ed Levine, Jillian Mayer, Gean Moreno, Gavin Perry and David Rohn.
