RAP symposium

EVENTS

RAP organizes and invites proposals for year-round scholarly programs, which allow for sustained inquiry into a particular subject or theme. We welcome topics that challenge traditional expectations for art historical thinking, center new voices, address issues of historical as well as contemporary urgency, and expand the boundaries of the field. These events contribute to a broader understanding of the role of visual art in culture and enrich the intellectual life of the Clark and its surrounding communities.

May 12, 2022—MLCA Artist Lab Roundtable on Blackness as a multifaceted experience and giving artists an opportunity to interpret the world on their own terms

Seminar-style events

COLLOQUIA

The Clark sponsors colloquia—small, semi-private gatherings of researchers who wish to discuss topics of mutual interest. Colloquia focus on an array of themes spanning the history and historiography of art. 

EXHIBITION CONCEPT WORKSHOPS

Exhibition Concept Workshops allow collaboration among curators who are at the very earliest stage of an exhibition’s development, when the ideas are still germinal. Such a gathering assists curators in deepening and refining the idea driving their exhibition.

PROPOSE AN EVENT

We welcome proposals twice a year for colloquia, exhibition concept workshops, and symposia. We seek ideas for interdisciplinary events that bring to public notice innovative work and research, particularly on topics related to diverse issues and practices that have historically been overlooked or sidelined in the discipline.
