Undergrad ConferenceThe Department of Visual Arts, Western University, continues to celebrate its 50th anniversary with Looking Back, an exhibition featuring works from the McIntosh Gallery Permanent Collection. The organizing principle for this exhibition focuses on works produced by former faculty members which were collected between the late 1960s – mid 2000s. Never shown together before, the artworks in this group exhibition offer new points of view, and some unexpected connections. In conjunction with the exhibit a recent McIntosh acquisition will be unveiled at the opening reception.

Finally, Looking Back will also include a representative selection of publications by the Department’s art historians who, like their studio colleagues have made a substantial contribution to their field.
