The Visual Arts Gallery is Emory University’s center for the presentation of contemporary art. The gallery shows work by leading national and international artists who approach contemporary art as a cultural prism through which all manner of inquiries pass. The mission of the gallery is to engage significant issues through art, encourage diversity and to embrace responsibility for this. Located adjacent to the university’s studio classrooms, the gallery, designed by award-winning architects Menefee and Winer, is a versatile space of 1,100 square feet that exhibits five to seven contemporary art shows each year, including an annual student exhibition in April. To supplement its exhibitions, the gallery also presents outstanding lectures, panels and screenings by prominent artists, curators, critics and scholars. Previous exhibitions and lectures have included Martha Rosler, Eve Andrée Laramée, Radcliffe Bailey and many others.
