Clark Studies in the Visual Arts

The Clark Studies in the Visual Arts series provides an international forum for scholars and museum professionals to confront the philosophical and political questions provoked by the study of the visual arts in culture. Based on the proceedings of the annual Clark Conferences, these important publications encourage an interdisciplinary exploration of issues that are timely, relevant, and even controversial.
