Pacific Northwest College of Art hosted a lecture by W.J.T. Mitchell on “The Future of the Image” as a part of the PNCA+FIVE Idea Studios program.
Scholar and theorist of media, visual art, and literature, Mitchell is the long-time editor of the interdisciplinary journal, Critical Inquiry, a quarterly published by University of Chicago Press devoted to critical theory in the arts and human sciences.
The lecture is part of a series of Idea Studios programs, generating from the College’s innovative Ford Institute of Visual Education (FIVE). Idea Studios engages leading thinkers and artists from a range of fields and practices to enrich the mix of ideas within the College and its broader community by introducing new elements, questions, possibilities and challenges to the prevailing curriculum.
