UB’s PLASMA speaker series

Since 2014, the University at Buffalo Department of Media Study’s ongoing PLASMA (Performances, Lectures, and Screenings in Media Art) speaker series has brought cutting-edge, world-renowned artists to UB to discuss varied arts practices, models, modes, examples, and experiences in media arts.

In 2021, this series can be enjoyed from home, as PLASMA presents its latest season via Zoom. The series, which runs on Mondays from 6 to 8:30 p.m., began in February and runs into May.
