The annual Visiting Artist Lecture Series (VALS), organized by graduate students in art, invites artists, scholars, curators, critics, gallerists and writers to give public lectures and conduct studio visits with students relevant to graduate students’ research and practice. The series is presented in a colloquium setting where students engage in in-depth discussions with the visiting artists and scholars.

The Visiting Artist Lecture Series Winter 2022 is organized by Rhea Anastas and the first year graduate cohort. This year VALS is presented with partners Rhizome and LAXART, and with the support of UCI Illuminations.
