Topic Tour: Looking at Art

Saturday, Dec 15

1:00 PM–2:00 PM


New to contemporary art? This tour offers strategies for approaching even the most challenging works. Join ICA Student Guide Malia Bates for an in-depth look at Jonathas de Andrade’s O Peixe and Julianne Swartz’s Sine Body, both of which address the concept of “body.”

Malia Bates is a student at VCU majoring in Sculpture and Extended Media, with a minor in Art History. She loves seeing visitors connect with an artwork.
