Our commitment to outstanding education, research, and teaching wouldn’t be possible without the support of our alumni, friends, and partners. 

At UBC and in the Department of Art History, Visual Art and Theory, we generate ideas that improve and inspire. You can have a lasting impact on generations of students and scholars through your involvement and investment.

Featured projects you can support

Distinguished Visiting Artist Program

Each year, the department invites distinguished international and Canadian critics, curators, artists, and scholars to deliver a public lecture, lead an intensive seminar, participate in graduate student critiques, conduct studio visits, and assist students in developing their work and early professional career.

Art History Graduate Student Travel

The travel fund provides art history graduate students support to conduct essential research in the field to meet with living artists, visit archives, galleries, and museums, and study research-related languages towards their theses and dissertations. Funds are also used for travel to deliver research presentations at conferences or symposia.
