Agency for Critical Inquiry

Agency for Critical Inquiry is a public forum that considers contemporary art as a source of knowledge about the world. This forum is host to informal discussions, slide shows, readings and performances where students, faculty and the general public study intersections of the visual arts with other disciplines. It is an open invitation to lead and attend events that delve deeper into ideas introduced by exhibitions, visiting artists or any topic that has our attention as a community. The intent is to bring our audiences closer for more informal, frequent, and intimate engagement with art and ideas at CCVA.

Agency for Critical Inquiry is a site for collective learning in the public realm.
