Every semester, students from PCA and Université Paris-Nanterre meet at the Terra Foundation for American Art in the occasion of a unique workshop devoted to undergraduate research in American art.
In Spring 2016, the Liberal Studies Department started a collaboration with the Terra Foundation for American Art on a new research program devoted to undergraduate students.
Students present their research work based on a jointly selected theme, and conducted at the Terra Foundation for American Art Library in Paris to an audience of peers. They work under the supervision of the Liberal Studies Department at PCA, and the Art History department at Université Paris-Nanterre. The workshop is an occasion to share interests and methodologies in the study of American art, and to be active members of a transatlantic network of young art historians.
Because of the current health crisis, the Spring 2021 Workshop will be held on Zoom.
The selected theme for the Spring 2021 session is: WORDS
This term, PCA will be represented by Fine Arts sophomore student Valentina Facchinetti, who will present a project titled “Text as Texture.” She will explore the visual aspect of words through the study of Carl André’s typed works.
Carla Toquet, PhD candidate at Université Paris Nanterre, will present a research project on American filmmaker Ava DuVernay: “Dissonance Between Words and Images in the Docufiction When They See Us by Ava DuVernay : an Artivist Strategy to Re-Establish Truth and Justice?”
