Conversations in Contemporary Art

Conversations in Contemporary Art is a visiting artist lecture series and graduate-level course sponsored by Concordia's Studio Arts MFA Program. CICA provides a unique opportunity to hear distinguished artists, critics, writers and curators from the Canadian and international community speak about their practices.


Visiting lecturers

Conversations in Contemporary Art artist talks are free and open to the general public. Our lecturers reflect the diversity and breadth of contemporary art practice and represent all the disciplines practiced at the department. The lectures are held in English and generally recorded for our Youtube channel.
