The Department of Visual Arts at the University of Chicago is committed to advancing theory and practice as a unified and sustainable investigation. Located within an internationally recognized research institution, the department fosters both multi-disciplinary and focused visual studies that engage our contemporary world with meaningful questions. History, social thought, philosophy, and aesthetics in and outside the field of artistic practice are of considerable influence on thinking artists. This approach investigates the world as it is, and imagines the world as it could be.
