Please join the UC San Diego Center for the Humanities for a lunchtime discussion with Alena Williams, Assistant Professor of Visual Arts.

Alena Williams’s research areas include film and media history and theory, modern and contemporary art, rhetoric of visual culture, theories of modernity, and the epistemology of the image. She is currently preparing a book-length study, The Total Experiment: Cinema and the Modernist Work of Art, on a contiguous set of objects that reflect cross-disciplinary ideas in the fields of modern art, film, and visual culture. Williams is the curator of Nancy Holt: Sightlines, an international traveling exhibition on American artist Nancy Holt’s Land art, films, videos, and related works from 1966–80 for the Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Art Gallery at Columbia University (2010–13).

The conversation with Dr. Williams will be moderated by Charles Curtis, Professor of Music.

This event is part of an ongoing series of Monday lunches made possible by a gift from Gay Lester. Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP here:
