As part of a VCS Forum on February 24, Lebovici will discuss her critical writing and scholarship, which explores intersections of gender theory and contemporary art.

-> INFRARED: New Visions from the Queer Underground
February 24, 2016 | 7:00pm – 9:00pm: Presented by Malic Amalya

The experimental films in this program examine gender construction, presentation, and reception. Defying standards of narrative cinema and normative desire, the films range in style from campy to abstract, from sensual to abrasive.

About the 2015-16 Graduate Studies Lecture Series
The 2015–16 Graduate Studies Lecture Series explores the many ways in which we undertake daily acts of both literal and implied translation, whether from ideas into actions or ideas into artworks, designs, films, or exhibitions; plans into buildings; or thought into the written and illustrated word.

In addition to exploring more general modes of translation, this series offers opportunities to consider specifically the challenges and opportunities of translating from one language, medium, or context to another.
