Visiting Artists & Lectures

Visiting artists of diverse backgrounds frequently join the MassArt community for a few days, weeks, or months. Through lectures, slide talks, gallery walkthroughs, symposia, and residencies, these artists share their perspectives on practicing their chosen craft.

Visits often coincide with exhibitions of artists' work, granting MassArt students the unique opportunity to participate in mounting professional installations. While some visits are intimately tied to curricula, others are designed to fill a gap or broaden the student experience.

MassArt's Visiting Artists & Lecture Series Include: Art Ed Speaker Series, Ciné Culture, Fine Arts Lecture Series, History of Art Symposium, Photography Lecture Series, and Tuesday Talks, as well as others.
