Ricardo Viera

Professor of Art, Director and Chief Curator
Lehigh University Art Galleries, Bethlehem, PA, USA
Ricardo Viera has established a visual laboratory program with the LUAG Teaching Collection and the nationally recognized collection of Latin American Photography and Video. Viera teaches courses in Photography as Contemporary Art, Latino and Latin American Art of the Americas, Museum and Curatorial Studies, and Visual Thinking Strategies.

He has organized, curated and served as a consultant for important exhibitions nationally and internationally. Since the early 1990’s he has been a reviewer and consultant curator for FotoFest. In October 2006 he was invited to China as a portfolio reviewer for the first FotoFest Beijing, and he later went to Russia for FotoFest Moscow 2011.

Professor Viera is most interested in creative 21st century endeavors, in essence photography and video as contemporary art. He has shaped the LUAG Teaching Collection not just as a collection of images, but as a collection of ideas that transcend the ordinary.
