The Department of Visual Arts is
dedicated to being at the forefront of teaching and learning and fostering
cutting-edge research. DVA is redefining liberal arts education for the 21st
century and is committed to an open Yazd University and student aid by making a
Yazd University education accessible to students from all backgrounds.
The Department of Visual Arts
cultivates skills in both practice and critical study of the visual arts. Its
components include photography, video art, painting, drawing, printmaking,
sculpture, visual studies as well as critical theory. The Department comprises
individuals working and teaching in all of these modes. The Department has a
strong commitment to fostering dialogue among makers, critics, and theorists.
For graduates, the Department
provides students in a liberal arts college with an opportunity to gain an
understanding of the structure and meaning of the visual arts through both
study and practice in diverse areas. The Department is committed to an
integrated study of artistic practice, visual culture, and the critical study
of the image. Our Department of practitioners, critics, and theorists works
with students to develop both formal skills and a sophisticated understanding
of the roles played by technical ability and individual invention in the
creation of art. Visiting artists join the Department in order to explore
current issues in contemporary art in the context of the Department's course
offering, in exhibitions as well as public lectures scheduled to take place
throughout the year. We emphasize the equipping of young artists whose
ambitions are to become shapers of culture, whether as practicing artists,
educators, or creative professionals.
Alumni (B.A. or M.A.) go on to
pursue a wide range of interests in the art world. Those who establish gallery
connections are able to work as studio artists, but the paths people choose
often lead to other creative work as curators, critics, performance artists,
arts administrators, gallery owners, event planners, set designers,
illustrators and much more.
