Tackle shifting paradigms of modern and contemporary art on a global stage in this two-day symposium organized by the Department of the History of Art.

Globalism is about geography and markets, but it’s also an inside job. An account of one critic growing up in an expanding and complicated world through art, and learning to see writing as a form of translation.
