International Association for Visual Culture
Prof Amanda du Preez serves on the Governing Board of the International Association for Visual Culture (Dr Marquard Smith, Director; Prof Nicholas Mirzoeff, Deputy Director; Prof Michael Ann Holly, President).
The International Association for Visual Culture means to foster communication and exchange among individuals and institutions engaged in critical analyses of and interventions in visual culture. As such, it means to sponsor and support trans-national and trans-disciplinary engagements across a wide range of communities, organizations, and platforms. The Association seeks both to encourage inquiry and debate within the field and to advocate for the critical and theoretical expansion of visual culture studies in sites as various as the museum, the university, the artist’s studio, and emergent alternatives to them.
