The Visiting Artists Program at PAFA brings an outstanding roster of local, national and international artists and critics to PAFA each semester for lectures, critiques, performances and workshops. The program exposes students to a range of artistic approaches and fosters discussion about contemporary art and ideas.

All lectures are free and open to the public. For details, visit

February 4
Jillian Steinhauer is senior editor at Hyperallergic. She writes about contemporary art, in particular the intersection of art and politics.

February 11
Hanneline Røgeberg’s works explore the paradoxes of representation and language. Her paintings are deeply involved in the material challenges of painting.

February 25
Alejandro Almanza Pereda makes sculptures that explore registers of risk that are generally unacknowledged in everyday encounters in cities like New York or Mexico City.

March 3
Alexi Worth is a painter, curator, art critic, and writer known for his conceptually rich and visually graphic works that address modern life and art making.

March 17
Rachel Rose explores concepts of mortality through striking video installations that deftly merge moving images and sound with nuanced environments.

March 24–25
Peter Saul is a painter and printmaker known for his satirical commentary on American culture, politics, and history. He is known for his electric color palette and comically horrendous use of the human figure.

April 14
Alex Paik uses cut and folded paper to explore visual counterpoint and repetition. Most recently he has been experimenting with negative shapes created on white walls, to create subtle pools of color that appear through reflections of his paper.

April 21
Gary Panter is a painter, designer, and comic book illustrator. He was heavily involved in the designs for early punk movements, and this focus on underground culture has remained evident throughout his career.
