The Visual Culture Conference - London 2010

The International Association for Visual Culture was formally established at ‘The 2010 Visual Culture Studies Conference’ held at University of Westminster, London. During the session, with presentations from Jeremy Gilbert (University of East London), Michael Ann Holly, and Stephen Melville (Ohio State), and convened by Marquard Smith, a motion was proposed formally by W.J.T. Mitchell (Chicago) that the Association be established. This motion was seconded by Lisa Cartwright (UC, San Diego), and the motion was passed.

The conference was organized by Nicholas Mirzoeff (New York University), Joanne Morra (Central Saint Martins), and Marquard Smith (now at University College London).
