Amy Villarejo, chair of the Department of Film, Television, and Digital Media at the UCLA School of Theatre, Film & Television, will present the Craig Owens Memorial Lecture.
Craig Owens, who died of AIDS in 1990 at the age of 39, was a critic, teacher and one of the founders of VCS, shaping it with his commitments to postmodern theory, contemporary art, feminism, queer studies, and gay activism. He was an associate editor for October and senior editor for Art in America. We honor his memory each year with a lecture given by a distinguished scholar engaging issues related to Owens's interests.
