HASA 2020 Symposium Journal Now Available!

September 3, 2020 by Department of Art History

The History of Art Students’ Association Annual 2019–2020 Symposium Journal Art and the Nature of Change is now available!

HASA is excited to announce that the current 2020 issue of their Annual Symposium Journal is now available for download on their website! Their theme - Art and the Nature of Change - sought to address the role of art and visual culture in influencing, reflecting, responding to, and giving meaning to moments of change. HASA invited undergraduates to explore how artists and art movements negotiate periods of political, technological, social, religious, institutional and environmental change through their interactions with artworks and with the culture of objects and museums. The theme of Art and the Nature of Change, as exemplified by the research of their eight contributors, is meant to highlight how art never functions independently from its environment and moment in history but rather evolves with it and often works to be a visual relic of what is temporal and ephemeral.
