The Danish/Swiss art historian, curator and critic Julie Harboe will visit the Northern State University Art Department as part of its Visiting Scholar Series.

Harboe will arrive on Sept. 7 and spend 10 days on campus, working with the various art classes. She will be a part of several hands-on workshops and presentations during her visit. 

Focused on arts’ practice and working in the field between art and research Harboe has co-founded and managed an interdisciplinary art space, developed and coordinated a unit for artistic research and is currently lecturer and researcher with Future Laboratory CreaLab at Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts.

In its third year, the Visiting Scholar Series was started by Dr. Greg Blair, associate professor of art/Northern Galleries Director, as a means to bring nationally and internationally recognized art scholars to work with NSU students.  Many of the scholars present research that emphasizes the important link between scholarly research and artistic practice. Past visiting scholars include Dr. Jennifer Hall from Boston, Mass., and Dr. Katherine McFadden from Philadelphia, Pa.
