Tickets are £8. Best-known today as a painter of uncompromisingly ‘narrative-less’ pictures, Albert Moore’s distinctive pictorial practices facilitated productive alliances with some of the most progressive European painters, designers and architects of his age. Framed consistently as an ‘outsider’ to the London art world, Moore was in fact at the epicentre of artistic negotiations over the politics and principles of Aestheticism and the formulation of the beautiful as an inherently radical art practice. Yet despite his substantial contribution to nineteenth-century visual culture - not to mention his persistent afterlife through photographic reproduction - Moore has often been characterised as a marginal or isolated figure whose interests in ornament, atemporality and materiality place him outside mainstream narratives of British nineteenth-century art history. Working in tandem with York City Art Gallery’s first monographic exhibition of the York born artist since his death in 1893, this conference will seek to refocus debates around Albert Moore, his work as well as his social and professional networks. We hope to re-interrogate Moore’s frequent association with Aestheticism in the visual arts, to explore other, less well-known historical contexts for his practice, review his critical presentation as an outsider alienated from the institutional structures of the metropolis and more generally to consider what new methodological approaches might be necessary to ‘make sense of Moore’.     Contact details for further information: Madeline Boden and Samantha Niederman - rethinkingalbertmoore@gmail.com Deadline for booking: Monday 3 July 2017  ]]> Sun, 28 May 2017 04:37:52 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Conference - Representing the Sixth Sense in Art and Visual Culture]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/00000002206 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/00000002206 https://www.ucl.ac.uk/institute-of-advanced-studies/ias-events/representing-the-sixth-sense-in-art-and-visual-culture Contact details for further information: a.deutsch.11@ucl.ac.uk This event is free.]]> Sun, 28 May 2017 04:37:52 +0000 <![CDATA[Job Opportunity - Professor of the History of Art, Science & Folk Practice, the Warburg Institute]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/00000002205 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/00000002205 The Warburg Institute has been awarded a grant by the Andrew W.

Proposed themes include: - Arts education in Africa during the colonial period and its legacy - Art and the decolonisation process - Post-colonial modernism and artistic movements after independence - Cultural imperialism and negritude - Artistic antecedents and the legacy of Ben Enwonwu - The role of family archives in preserving African art history - Institutionalising memory and reevaluating art history Selected papers will be considered for publication in Tate’s peer reviewed journal, Tate Papers.

Picturing Places showcases works of art by well-known artists such as Thomas Gainsborough and J.M.W. Turner alongside images by a multitude of lesser-known figures. Only a few have ever been seen or published before. Historically, the British Library’s prints and drawings have been overlooked by scholars. This is the first time that a large and important body of such materials from the Library are being brought to light. While landscape images have often been treated as accurate records of place, this website reveals the many different stories involved – about travel and empire, science and exploration, the imagination, history and observation. As well as over 500 newly-digitised works of art from the collection, this growing site will feature over 100 articles by both emerging and established scholars from many disciplines. Part of the British Library’s ongoing Transforming Topography (www.bl.uk/projects/transforming-topography) research project, films from the Library’s 2016 conference exploring the depiction of place are also accessible, providing revelatory insights about the history of landscape imagery.

Rather than purely a focus on politically based art in this context, we turn to the question of directions in art, where directions refer both to geography and chronology. The aim is to investigate artistic production and exchange in relation to the geographical, conceptual and imaginative relationships between north, south, east and west, so as to encompass discussion of transnational and global art histories; and the binaries of centre and periphery, modern and traditional. The theme takes account of the conference location in Western Australia – ranging from perceptions of the west to its distinct collections, and history. Convenors of panel sessions might consider subject areas such as: • The theorising of geographies in relation to art • Art and the changing history of place • Landscapes, travel and the sensory dimension of place • Heritage, nostalgia and anachronism in art • Contemporary curatorial practice and its global aspects • Indigenous art and cultural objects in their original settings and in the museum • The legacy of colonialism in historical and contemporary art practice • Emigré and refugee artists, and cross-cultural exchange • Representations of the cosmos, and the mapping of sea and land in Aboriginal art • Aboriginal rock art and cross-cultural encounters • Art and cartography, navigation, travel and trade • The translocation of art through commercial forces and war • The mobility of images in the digital age, including the role of photography • The space of the studio and its relation to the outer world Further details can be found here: http://aaanz.info/aaanz-home/conferences/2017-conference/art-and-its-directions-call-for-sessions/ Contact details for further information: Vyonne Walker conf@aaaanz.info Deadline for submission: 22nd May 2017  ]]> Sun, 28 May 2017 04:37:52 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Call for papers - Bulletin - non academic art papers]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/00000002166 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/00000002166 Sections Even though Bulletin will host different and dynamic sections, the editorial board has indicated three different sections for the development of critical inquiries about contemporary art: _Non Academic Papers _Artist Portfolios* _Conversations *Narrative portfolios.

North and South of the Loire: The Culture of Copying and the Rebirth of Sculpture by Professor Deborah Kahn Abstract: From his thesis of 1950 on “Regional Schools of English Sculpture” to his later writings, Professor George Zarnecki, deputy director of the Courtauld Institute of Art from 1961 – 74, showed himself to be a master of visual comparison. In one of his last articles (written in 1992), he surveyed the iconographic kinship between the earliest Romanesque sculptures at Saint-Benoit-sur-Loîre, Bayeux and Toulouse. These far-flung similarities revealed a culture of copying that led to what may be regarded as a rebirth of architectural sculpture in these regions. The article still serves as the basis for further exploration of the visual relationships between the earliest monumental architectural sculpture and the role of copybooks and loose sketches in the transmission of motifs and iconography. George speculated that the likely source of all these relationships was the monastery and library at Saint-Benoit-sur-Loîre — as indeed has turned out to be the case. Moreover, the emergent taste for monumental architectural sculpture on the great new ashlar buildings of the first half of the 11th century appears to reflect not only the preoccupations of the abbot of Saint-Benoit, Gauzlin (1004-1030), but also those of his half brother Robert II (972-1031), whose foundations at Saint-Germain-des-Prés and Saint-Aignan at Orléans were richly carved in the 1020s as well. The rebirth of monumental architectural sculpture in the early eleventh century thus turns out to have been given impetus by the ascendant Capetian dynasty. These connections amplify the links set forth by George and confirm not only his extraordinary ability to trace previously unnoticed formal lineages but also his role in laying the ground for future studies in the field of Romanesque art.

The importance of the collective’s contribution to the field of artists’ writings and publications, for example, should not be under-estimated, as recent exhibitions focusing on conceptual art in Britain have shown. This one-day symposium, to be held at the University of York, will explore in particular the often under-considered journal Art-Language, published between 1969 and 1985 within the wider context of artists’ magazines and their production, distribution and consumption during this period. The periodical was originally conceived as a discursive platform for the group’s text-based work, circumventing the space of the gallery and questioning the status of the art object as static, museum-bound artefact. Yet Art-Language has been frequently overlooked or misunderstood, being read instead through its exhibition history, and the critical discourses which surround it. These often re-situate the journal in precisely the object-based frameworks of display and consumption that the collective sought to question and challenge. We therefore welcome proposals which seek to position Art-Language within the burgeoning field of the study of artists’ publications and their histories, and with particular interest in how magazines and journals come to be framed subsequent to their original production.

As migration and expatriatism have come to be understood among its defining characteristics, once carefully delineated edges between the national and the foreign seem increasingly porous. This shift corresponds with the dissolution of other kinds of borders. Artists have long transgressed the limits of artistic movement, medium specificity and other imposed restrictions, sometimes sneaking well outside the bounds of art itself. Historians of American art have also begun to more actively cross the disciplinary limits that once constrained the field. Led by keynote speakers Philip Ursprung (Professor of the History of Art and Architecture, ETH Zurich) and Cécile Whiting (Chancellor’s Professor, University of California, Irvine), ‘Border Control: On the Edges of American Art’ will embrace scholarship that attends to the boundaries of American art in the broadest visual, historical and conceptual terms.

The first day will cover the historic formation of the self, its role as a motor to historical development, and its classical formulation in political theory, economics, philosophy and law. The relationship and contradictions between the individual self and society will be explored in the context of the relationship between the particular and the universal. The second day will examine the fall of the self, post-Enlightenment, in terms of the retreat from and disavowal of what might be called bourgeois individualism and universalism in a trajectory towards identity politics and relativism. Lectures will cover topics such as authenticity, body-obsession, selfie-culture, social constructionism, and what prospects remain for the project of liberal humanism today. Overall the event will follow on from discussion in previous Academies about the emergence of the individual, personhood and the autonomy of the human subject and consider the contemporary problematics of the self in their different forms: self-obsession, notably bodily self-obsession, on the one hand, and an abstract hollow universalism on the other, viz moral grandstanding without consequence.

The Reception of Swiss Art in the Context of the Eighteenth-Century European Grand Tour]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/00000002137 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/00000002137 Call for proposals It has often been claimed that the so-called Swiss Kleinmeister, printmakers of small genre and landscape scenes between 1750 and 1850, sold their artworks to Grand Tour travellers, thus contributing to the construction and popularization of a new ‘image of Switzerland’ in Europe. However, little is known about the travelling art buyers and the specific ways in which these small Swiss art objects were distributed, collected, and displayed abroad. Taking this question as a starting point, we welcome contributions which investigate the reception and distribution of these travelling images of Switzerland. Special priority will be given to topics which focus on the materiality of specific objects as well as topics which centre on the role and the meaning of Swiss artworks at their places of destination. Please send your proposal (max. 300 words), a short CV and a short list of keywords (max 6) no later than May 1st, 2017 to Danijela Bucher (danijela.bucher@uzh.ch) and Miriam Volmert (miriam.volmert@khist.uzh.ch). Final selection and notification to authors will be announced no later than July 31st, 2017. Finished articles (ca. 30’000–40’000 characters including spaces, ca. 12–15 illustrations) should be submitted by 31st January 2018. No royalty will be paid for any article. Authors are responsible for all reproduction right fees.    ]]> Sun, 28 May 2017 04:37:52 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Online website – learning and teaching resource on feminism and contemporary art (post-1970)]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/00000002136 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/00000002136 http://nparadoxa.com/ Contact details for further information: katy@ktpress.co.uk The MOOC has been written by Katy Deepwell, founder and editor of n.paradoxa: international feminist art journal.

The report forewords by ministers Matt Hancock and Nick Gibb acknowledge that the continued offer of the History of Art A-Level is an important step in a much wider effort to protect and extend the opportunities offered by arts education, also restating the government's commitment to ensuring that high-quality arts education is the entitlement of every single child. The Association of Art Historians, along with partner organisations across the arts and education, also welcome the Government's statement within the report that the arts and culture have the potential to be forces for openness, a belief at the heart of our educational campaign work. This said we are mindful that much is still be to done to ensure the future vitality of arts education in both primary and secondary settings, and will work with colleagues across the schools sector to fully explore the challenges and opportunities presented by the NSN report and its central question as to whether schools have to choose between the EBacc and the arts. As a school performance measure the EBacc has attracted a significant amount of attention over the last 2 years and with the implementation of headlines measures Progress 8 and Attainment 8 has led to much debate about the challenges for art and cultural education in schools. This debate has naturally thrown up questions as to what the EBacc covers and what Progress 8 and Attainment 8 are used for in terms of school reward mechanisms and is something that we wish to explore with colleagues across education in order to better inform our own education strategies and interventions. As NSN conclude, more analysis needs to be done to build a complete picture of what is happening with the arts in schools, and we would welcome the opportunity to contribute to the continued debates and analysis that the NSN report calls for, particularly with respect to art history, visual culture and the role of critical and contextual enquiries within schools.

Whilst this renewed interest in archival materials has resulted in an increased awareness of the complexities of lens-based media, it has also allowed practitioners to challenge both the dominant narratives of colonialism and their neo- and postcolonial legacies. In the case of Cambodia and its diasporas, this archival impulse – and its accompanying modes of (re-) appropriation – is exemplified by films such as Rithy Panh’s La France est notre patrie and Davy Chou’s Golden Slumbers. Whereas the former offers and insight into the hypocrisies of French colonial rule, the latter takes its lead from the development of twentieth century Cambodian cinema. Yet despite differing in their aims and emphases, these projects share a number of common characteristics – namely, a desire to foreground the importance of preserving and revisiting archival materials: two imperatives which have acquired a particular significance in the aftermath of the Khmer Rouge regime. Taking its lead from these recent developments, this symposium will explore the ways in which colonial and postcolonial film and photography archives have been rearticulated within a range of Southeast Asian political and aesthetic contexts. How have artists and filmmakers sought to subvert existing power relations through the use of colonial images? To what extent have archival materials and technologies allowed for an investigation into the emancipatory potential of the lens? How have these techniques been utilised by diasporic populations? Though preference will be given to submissions which focus upon Southeast Asia, we also welcome papers that draw comparisons with other postcolonial contexts. Possible lines of enquiry include: - The political and aesthetic implications of re-situating images - Hindu/Buddhist aesthetic conventions and their use/subversion in colonial and postcolonial lens-based practices - The ethics, politics and artistic innovations of documentary work - Contemporary artistic practices which explore the themes of space, place and home - The return of European filmmakers and photographers to the postcolony Please submit abstracts of c. 500 words and a two-page CV to Fiona Allen, Annie Jael Kwan and Joanna Wolfarth at: reframingthearchive@gmail.com Deadline for booking: 17 February 2017]]> Sun, 28 May 2017 04:37:52 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Call for papers - The Centre as Margin]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/00000002108 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/00000002108 http://coloquiosamargem.weebly.com/ We welcome all participants and contributions that relate, directly or peripherally, with the artistic phenomenon, in all its historical times, up to the present.

Air is everywhere. The air we breathe is essential to human, plant and animal life; its quality is a fundamental ingredient of our health and that of the planet as a whole. The air above us is a region of wonders and dangers: hot air balloons and aeroplanes, flying creatures and bombing raids, luminous colours and evocative clouds. It is not surprising that artists have often been fascinated by this kind of subject matter. From experiments with air-pumps in the eighteenth century, through the sky paintings of Turner and Constable and the polluted cityscapes of Grimshaw and Lowry, to the wartime perils and the exhilaration of flight in the paintings of Ravilious and Lanyon, British artists have found many varied sources of inspiration in the air. Contemporary artists tackle similar themes, with an emphasis less on flight, which is no longer a novelty, than on the nature of breath and the connections between air and health. This one-day symposium complements the exhibition, which includes works by Joseph Wright of Derby, J. M. W. Turner, John Constable, Samuel Palmer, John Everett Millais, Christopher Nevinson, Eric Ravilious and Peter Lanyon along with work by contemporary artists.The symposium seeks to create dialogue between practising artists, curators, writers, academics and students from disciplines including history of art, cultural studies, geography, history, literature, environmental humanities and philosophy. Convenors Christiana Payne, Professor of History of Art, Oxford Brookes University Sam Smiles, Professor Emeritus of History of Art, University of Plymouth Stephen Jacobson, Vice-President, Royal West of England Academy Call for papers 250-word abstracts for 20-minute papers should be sent to Christiana Payne at cjepayne@brookes.ac.uk to arrive no later than Tuesday 31 January 2017.

Keynote speakers will be Caroline Arscott (The Courtauld Institute of Art) and Ian Duncan (University of California, Berkeley). All genres of Victorian literature addressed the major questions of social and political reform that characterized the period, as did many art and craft practices, genres of history writing or scholarship, and forms of popular culture. This conference will give us an opportunity to think about the “form” of reform. Current debates about form and formalism in Victorian Studies open the door to this dimension of the word “reform,” and they urge us to re-consider their relation. We also invite historical papers on nineteenth-century reform movements. Ideally, such a broad topic should also suggest meta-critical questions about the period – and periodization: questions addressing the formal dimensions of conceiving our objects of study. If we can make the distinction between historicist criticism and formalist criticism, how can these engage and challenge each other afresh?   Topics might include: • Historicism as form • Form as engagement with history • Form and genre • The history of forms • Forms of history • Spatial or temporal form • Form and politics • Medical reform • Sanitary reform • Military reform • Religious reform • Educational Reform • Prison reform • Civil Service reform • Abolition movements • Working class perceptions of the Reform Bills • Race and reform • Reform and the Woman Question • Chartism and Chartist writing • Intersections between kinds of reform (social and literary e.g.) • Formal properties of reform rhetoric • Reform of the self • Queer reform movements • Form and realist fiction • Poetic forms, forms of poetics • Musical forms   Submit a 500-word proposal and a 1-page CV to Carolyn Williams no later than December 15, 2016 (carolyn.williams@rutgers.edu). The conference program will be announced in January, 2017.

This includes those who were forced to leave their home countries due to political, social or religious pressures, such as refugees fleeing Nazi persecution in the 1930s, as well as artists who chose freely to migrate to Britain, whether permanently or temporarily.

This is an interdisciplinary conference exploring meanings, perceptions and the scholarly and creative reception of cycles of life in art, literature and science in historical and contemporary cultural contexts. The aim is to bring together a wide range of scholars from different disciplinary backgrounds, including those with interests in the History of Art, English Literature, Shakespeare, Theatre, Early Modern History, Classical Studies, Medical Science, Psychology and the Social Sciences. Topics of interest for submission may include, but are not limited to: How has the human life-cycle been portrayed and explored in art, literature and in other cultural/social contexts? How has this shifted over time, or been influenced by different contexts? Can Shakespeare’s description of the seven ages continue to have relevance in a society that champions social diversity? What parallels can be drawn between a human life-cycle and other life-cycles found in the natural world? Can we still recognise universal developmental stages of life that we may think of as innate and/or timeless? Given the advancements of science, what lies beyond our natural life-cycle? Proposals Abstracts of no more than 400 words are invited for papers, panels and workshop presentations and should be suitable for presentations of approximately 20 minutes.

And why does it matter? This event, organised in conjunction with the Wallace Collection, will provide a lively introduction to the subject. The emphasis of the morning will be on developing skills in visual and historical analysis, with a series of short ‘taster’ talks by art historians. Embracing everything from moving images and gardens to anatomical atlases and relics, Students will discover that art history is about more than simply the study of paintings by Old Masters. There will also be a short campus tour, an opportunity to have lunch with current students and a visit to UCL’s own Art Museum. In the afternoon, students will get an opportunity to test out some of the ideas introduced in the morning by visiting the Wallace Collection, a veritable treasure trove of paintings, furniture, armour and other objects. Here you’ll go on tours of the museum with UCL researchers, focusing on specific items in the collection. Finally, staff at the Wallace Collection will discuss how a History of Art degree has helped them in their own careers.

The Victorian artist George Frederic Watts is perhaps best remembered as a portrait artist and for his social realism paintings. Much study has been undertaken into his life and the symbolism of his works. With the opening of Watts Studios, a new museum that explores the act of making and reinstates Watts’s studio, time has been dedicated to the research of his painting techniques. From rubbing raw potato on his canvases, to leaving his works for several years in a greenhouse to see the effects of light on his completed works, Watts was a great experimenter. Using correspondence between Watts and Winsor and Newton, and the biography written by his wife, the designer Mary Watts, this talk will reveal the hopes of an artist to preserve his works for the public and explore his failures as a result of his experiments. Since joining Watts Gallery – Artists’ Village in 2014 Kerri Offord has project managed and curated Watts Studios, an Heritage Lottery Fund supported project to reinstate the studio of G. F. Watts and create a new gallery dedicated to the work of the artist and designer Mary Watts. Watts Studios opened to the public on 26th January, 2016. Kerri Offord is currently working on several avenues of research relating to the techniques and influences of the Wattses and exploring the connection between their working practices. Venue: In the Robing Room at Freemason's Hall, 60 Great Queen Street, London WC2B 5AZ. Doors open at 6pm. Talk 6.30pm – 8pm. Tickets: ICON members: £10, non- members: £15.

Since the emergence of Positive Psychology in 1998, there is a growing body of evidence suggesting a positive correlation between wellbeing and arts engagement on both individual and community level. More particularly, the common perception of museums and galleries as serious spaces bound by rules and regulations has been challenged in recent years, especially through their specific programmes designed to improve the wellbeing of children and young people. Consequently, in recent years, children’s presence in these institutions has been reframed into a relationship of creativity, unpredictability and co-creation. Inspired by the International Play Association’s 2013 worldwide campaign to build awareness to the importance of play in the lives of all children, institutions such as Manchester Museum embrace their role as Playful Museums, organizing events geared towards enhancing children’s wellbeing and happiness as well as publishing resource guides such as Rules for a Playful Museum (2015). Richmond’s conference will reflect on these recent phenomena and their implications; furthermore, the benefits of arts participation to the wellbeing of adults and communities will be explored, within a Positive Psychology theoretical framework. How do art galleries and museums contribute to positive wellbeing and the development of character strengths such as resilience or creativity? How can arts engagement build thriving, resilient communities? This conference brings together six academics, psychologists, museum professionals and play specialists in order to discuss these important issues.

This conference aims to bring together scholars from across the humanities, critics and artists to engage questions around ‘Black British-ness’ and Black British creative production during the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Often perceived, and dismissed, as a by-product of the social, critical and political milieu of the 1980s, the Black Arts Movement in Britain has been, until recently, largely packed away as something no longer relevant in a global, multicultural, even post-racial world. Building on and responding to a growing interest in reassessing the role of the Black Arts Movement in the construction of contemporary ideas around race, national identity, gender and aesthetics (see recent exhibitions such as Thin Black Line(s) (Tate, 2012), Staying Power: Photographs of Black British Experience (V&A and Black Cultural Archives, 2015) and Keywords: Art, Culture and Society in 1980s Britain (Tate Liverpool, 2014) and the opening of the Black Cultural Archives in Brixton), the conference asserts the continued and dynamic presence of the ‘Critical Decade’. It is the organisers’ aim that by bringing together scholars from a range of disciplines – fine art, dance, the history of art, visual culture, literature, history, and critical theory to name a few – the conference will yield new ways of thinking about narratives of creative production in Britain at the turn of the twenty-first century.

Many field of culture, especially art and literature, religion and science, rely on the visual imagination. Its importance for our mental life has long made it a subject of interest to philosophers, and more recently it has been studied by psychologists, cognitive scientists, and now neuroscientists. This conference, which is the culmination of the AHRC-funded research project, 'The Eye's Mind: a Study of the Neural Basis of the Visual Imagination and its Role in Culture', will for the first time bring together specialists in all these areas with a view to laying the foundations for a new understanding of its vital human capacity. To achieve this challenging goal the organisers seek proposals from specialists of graduate level and above in any relevant area to join the existing panel of keynote speakers in presenting their own research. Possible contributions would include: studies of the role of visual imaginative experience in any field of culture, analyses of the theoretical issues raised by the imagery in the domains of philosophy and psychology, relevant work in cognitive science or neuroscience. Keynote speakers include Michael Tye (philosophy), Joel Pearson (neuroscience), Paul Broks (psychology), John Onians (art History) and Adam Zeman (neurology). Potential presenters should submit 250 word abstracts to m.mackisack@exeter.ac.uk by 29th February 2016 indicating whether platform or poster presentation is preferred. The registration fee will be kept to a minimum to cover costs, at around £150. Bursaries may be available for junior delegates.

This involves thinking about Classical art on its own terms (its underlying assumptions about desire, eroticism, and sex, for example); but it also means integrating interests of criticisms and ethics today, re-examining some standard interpretative modes in the aftermath of J. J. Winckelmann’s 1764 History of the Art of Antiquity. If ‘beauty’ and ‘the ideal’ are outcomes of normative sexuality, then where do non-normative sexualities of the ancient world (and the modern) find figuration in Classical art, let alone legitimacy? If homoeroticism is probably the last thing that was queer about Classical art, what is the first? In general, how have people made – how could we make – Classical art less of a conscious precedent for aesthetic and erotic life, and more of an unconscious resource? The 2016 Rumble Lecture comes about thanks to the generosity of Jamie Memorial Rumble Fund. It is run as in collaboration with the Institute of Classical Studies and the Department of Classics at King’s College London. The event will be followed by a reception in Chapters, to which all are warmly invited. Whitney Davis is Pardee Professor of History & Theory of Ancient & Modern Art at the University of California at Berkeley and Visiting Professor of History of Art at the University of York. He is the author of seven books, most recentlyQueer Beauty: Sexuality and Aesthetics from Winckelmann to Freud and Beyond and A General Theory of Visual Culture; he has also written many essays on prehistoric and ancient art, homoeroticism and the visual arts, the history of sexuality and psychoanalysis, and queer visual culture, collecting, and criticism.

This conference will explore the concept of performance and its role in the construction of individual and communal identities. From a person’s choice of dress in the morning to what they eat at night: When and how should we conceive of such everyday actions as having a role in the performance and construction of identities? How have public acts and rituals been used to construct and contest group identities? And how have the meanings of these performative acts endured or changed over time? This conference seeks to interrogate the diverse ways in which performance theory can enhance our understanding of the construction of identities. It aims to draw together researchers from a broad range of disciplines, including: History, Art History, History of Design and Material Culture, Anthropology and Archaeology, Theatre, English, Classics and Film Studies. Speakers are invited to submit abstracts of 200 words in English, along with a short biography (approx. 100 words) to performingidentity2016@gmail.com by 31st March 2016.

Convened by Reina Lewis, London College of Fashion, UAL, and Andrew Stephenson, University of East London, the symposium analyses a broad range of same-sex artistic identities, creative practices and representational strategies demonstrating how the vibrant fabric of British culture has benefitted from the exceptional talents and energies of queer artists, designers and creative practitioners. Papers will examine how the unorthodox collaborations and lifestyles of queer individuals and groups working in Britain or abroad contributed to the dynamic vitality of Britian’s rich creative culture.

This day conference is organised alongside an exhibition at The Collection Lincoln, of Grant’s preparatory drawings for the murals, highlights from the Methodist Art Collection and a true to scale re- imagining of the Chantry chapel by contemporary artist Lothar Götz. Grant is known for his decorative and narrative schemes for civic, domestic and religious interiors, whilst Götz makes intensely coloured, geometric and architecturally related paintings, informed by the specific circumstances, inhabitants or histories of a place. The day brings together artists, curators and historians to provide a context for Grant’s Lincoln murals and Götz’s response, looking at both their heritage and their significance today. The conference will also explore more widely the commissioning and role of contemporary art in public spaces, whether sacred or secular.

The organisers wish to approach this topic from the perspective of multiple disciplines including anthropology, art history, cultural studies, history, musicology, philosophy, postcolonial studies and theatre studies. The founding of the Opera Village Africa in Burkina Faso is inextricably linked with Schlingensief's critical engagement with the writing and music of Richard Wagner, who served Schlingensief throughout his career as a touch-stone for a process of working through the heritage of the German past. The soundtrack to Salvador Dali and Luis Buñuel's Un Chien Andalou (1928) initially evoked Schlingensief's ambiguous fascination for Wagner, which carried through his career work as filmmaker, theatre and opera director, actionist and performance artist. Schlingensief's Parsifal production for the Bayreuth Festival on which he collaborated with the conductor Pierre Boulez in 2004 became pivotal to his subsequent projects. Disillusioned about the elitism and inaccessibility of opera, Schlingensief desired to do justice to the young Wagner's anarchist ideas of a Gesamtkunstwerk that is accessible for everyone. His strategy to enable a diversity of audiences to participate in the Gesamtkunswerk was the Animatograph - a travelling rotating stage, which he developed out of his stage set for Parsifal and toured to a diversity of locations, such as Iceland, Namibia and Neuhardenberg. This journey provided inspiration for Schlingensief's Opera Village Africa in Burkina Faso (2008-ongoing). Did Schlingensief succeed in bringing Wagner’s Gesamtkunstwerk to life in the twenty-first century? This is the question the conference will address and attempt to answer.

Organised with the Association for Research into Crimes against Art (ARCA), the event aims to provide a forum for addressing issues of urgent and public concern. Two strands of inquiry inform our discussion. One engages war and images, including terrorist use of visual images and media, such as YouTube videos and the documented destruction of cultural heritage. The other takes a criminological approach, examining the use and abuse of art, antiquities and monuments by terrorist groups, such as ISIS,al-Qaeda, the Taliban and the IRA. The event inaugurates a new initiative, ‘Courtauld Debates’, that brings art history into public-facing debates. It also highlights a new collection of essays, Art Crime: Terrorists, Tomb Raiders, Forgers and Thieves (Palgrave), which features numerous expert speakers on this critical and timely subject.

Here is located K2 and Nanga Parbat, and Rakaposhi in the Hunza-Nagar Valleys, with biggest, steepest slope on earth! The remote lifestyles of these valleys gave rise to stories of Shangri-La and the location was central to the 19th century ‘Great Game’. Before this, the inhabitants were raiders of the Silk Roads and some of their former robber strongholds survive, many crumbling, while others were adapted to be slightly grander palaces of the local Mirs and Rajas. Today these forts, starting with Baltit Fort , have been conserved and brought back to life, though a ‘bottom-up’ conservation approach involving local community participation. This work has also acted as a catalyst for the conservation of nearby traditional villages, part of rural development that has provided better water, health, education, new skills and new housing - incorporating rediscovered construction tricks for improving earthquake resilience. This lecture will review this 30 year old trend-setting cultural heritage programme, funded and managed by the Aga Khan Trust for Culture, part of the AKDN. Richard Hughes is a specialist historic building conservator and senior consultant archaeologist to Arup and to international and national agencies, including UNESCO, UNDP, The Aga Khan Trust for Culture, Dept. of International Development, EC, World Bank, and Egypt Exploration Society. For two decades he was the lead international consultant to His Highness the Aga Khan for conservation of historic buildings in the Northern Areas of Pakistan. Richard has considerable experience with the assessment and conservation of buildings and historic landscapes in UK urban environments and in the Middle East and Asia. He has extensive experience assessing and researching damage mechanisms and repair and strengthening techniques of traditional and historic structures affected by earthquakes, floods and armed conflict.

As a celebration of the journal approaching 40 years of publication history, the papers will present a range of perspectives on the problem of images and memory, as arguably key to defining the conceptual practice of the discipline. Looking both back onto the journal’s history and forward to prospective avenues of enquiry, the papers are variously concerned with situating art-historical or visual memory across a spectrum of disciplinary concerns. The papers will pursue issues of recollection, reminiscence and memory such as the affect of nostalgia, the play of temporalities, echoes and reflections, oblivions and forgettings, or conversely the afterlives of forms, whether ephemeral or archival, in their survivals and half-lives, absences and presence; and objects such as monuments, anti-monuments or memorials, mnemonic objects or displays, souvenirs, mementoes, replicas and reproductions, fragments or ruins.

He was a painter-writer whose painter’s “obsessions” (as he liked to call them) acted directly on his judgements as a critic-art-historian. This event is juxtaposed with a display of his pastels in The Courtauld Galleries, and will feature the screening of a documentary by award-winning film-maker Bruno Wollheim on Golding the painter. Uniquely Golding taught both at The Courtauld and in the Painting School at the Royal College of Art. The conference will have two major concerns: first, John Golding, the painter-writer, and the relationship between the practices of painting, art-writing and exhibition making in the 20th Century; second, new work in the fields about which Golding wrote. A major issue addressed will be the place of painting and of modernism in 20th Century art history. The first screening of Wollheim’s film on Friday, 4 December, will be followed by a discussion of Golding the painter, led by the sculptors Phillip King and Richard Deacon, and by two painters who were his students at the Royal College, James Mooney and Dillwyn Smith. The keynote talk by John Elderfield ranges across the history of modernism between the late 19th and the mid-20th Century, looking at three major painters, Cézanne, Matisse and de Kooning as writers. As well as the writing of 20th Century art history, exhibition curating will be a topic addressed on Saturday, 5 December, while three sessions devoted to the fields on which Golding wrote will bring together specialists with international reputations working on Cubism, Matisse, abstract painting (Mondrian, Malevich and the Abstract Expressionists), and on Duchamp, who Golding met in New York in the 1950s. Among the speakers, Dawn Ades, Elizabeth Cowling, Gavin Parkinson, John Elderfield, Christopher Green, John Milner and Sarah Wilson were all taught by Golding at The Courtauld.

As a result of the collaboration with the Institute of Art History in Würzburg the location of the conference will alternate in the future between the two venues. With the revival of the Renaissance Colloquium, initiated in 2002 in Leipzig, there will be no restriction on the geographical location of topics. The conference will engage with a wide spectrum of current art historical scholarship whilst providing an academic platform for young scholars to discuss innovative approaches to Renaissance Art. They therefore expressly welcome interdisciplinary topics and contributions from related areas of studies. The colloquium seeks to reflect on interdisciplinary methods and fields of art history, such as Visual Studies, Material Culture Studies and Digital Art History and strives also to discuss their relevance for the discipline of art history. As a consequence the 2016 venue will focus upon the way these methods are applied and facilitate new perspectives in the field of Renaissance art research. Contributions discussing collection related issues are welcome. Papers exploring the spatial context of art and culturally relevant objects and also the relationship between art and parergon are particularly encouraged.

For Voltaire it was ‘a singular desire, a passing whim’ (‘un désir singulier, un goût passager’), while for Samuel Johnson it was ‘something that pleases or entertains without real use or value’. Together with its near-synonym caprice (capriccio), fancy was part of a rich semantic network, connecting wit, pleasure, erotic desire, spontaneity, improvisation, surprise, deviation from norms, the trivial and inconsequential. Unpredictable and quirky, it offered many outlets for artistic creativity. These study days will explore the expressive freedom of fancy (fantaisie, capriccio) in European culture during the eighteenth century ? in figure and landscape painting, architecture and garden design, philosophy and fiction, theatre and music. Keynote speakers • Guillaume Faroult, Curator for 18th century Western paintings and for British and American paintings in the Louvre Museum • Martin Postle, Deputy Director of the Paul Mellon Centre for British Art. He is also a contributor to the catalogue. The Fancy-Fantaise-Capriccio conference is scheduled to coincide with an exhibition of paintings, Figures de fantaisie, at the Musée des Augustins, Toulouse, which runs from 20th November 2015 to 28th February 2016. Its subject is the fantasy figure in European painting of the sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. To learn more about the exhibition please visit: http://www.augustins.org/-/ceci-n-est-pas-un-portrait-presse?redirect=%2F-%2Fcommunication-et-presse During the study days, there will be a guided visit of the fantasy figures exhibition by curators Melissa Percival and Axel Hémery, Director of the Musée des Augustins. The exhibition of c. 70 paintings brings together the Venetian bravi of the Renaissance, the isolated half-length drinkers and musicians of the Caravaggisti, the tronies of Dutch painting, the pitocchi vagabonds of the bamboccianti and other naturalist painters of Italy, the Espagnolettes of eighteenth century France and the British fancy picture. Among the artists represented are A. Carracci, Lievens, Schalcken, Van Dyck, Jordaens, Hals, Sweerts, Murillo, Giordano, Crespi, Piazzetta, Tiepolo, Rotari, Santerre, Grimou, Greuze, Fragonard, Mercier, Morland and Opie. There are many meaningful points of connection between the exhibition and the study days. Both seek a broader synthetic understanding of the concept of fancy/fantaisie, and both seek in to make new connections between schools, disciplines, artistic outputs and clusters of thought. That said, Fancy-Fantaisie-Capriccio represents a deliberate choice not to replicate the exhibition or its catalogue, but rather to use it as a rich visual and conceptual backdrop for a new venture. Conference organizers • Muriel Adrien, Associate Professor at the University of Toulouse • Melissa Percival, Associate Professor in French and Art History at the University of Exeter, and guest curator. • Axel Hémery, Director of the Musée des Augustins, Toulouse For more information please visit https://fancyfantaisiecapriccio.wordpress.com/  ]]> Sun, 28 May 2017 04:37:52 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Call for papers - Transverberations: Iberian Mysticism in a Global Context]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/00000001784 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/00000001784 transverberations@gmail.com by December 14th, 2015.

Artists’ moving image practice is activated by the context of the gallery, by temporary architectural environments, the cinema and the internet, and by social and political performance. Over the last few decades, this kind of artistic practice – which has its roots in film, performance and installation art – has become a phenomenon in its own right. British artists and institutions have played a pioneering role in this history. From the filmmaking co-ops of the 1970s to recent exercises in digital manipulation, UK-based artists have been at the forefront of artistic experimentation, distribution, and exhibition. This has particularly been the case since the 1990s, when a mixture of artist support agencies and galleries such as LUX, Film and Video Umbrella, FACT, Film London and Channel 4 began re-aligning funding interests and supporting artists’ moving image work. Despite being showcased and discussed by arts and cultural organizations and academics, this field has not been fully explored or historicised. Featuring keynote lectures and panel discussions with leading specialists – artists, curators, film historians, art historians and critics – the purpose of this conference is to map the recent history of this dynamic strand of visual culture within a British context, and to develop new scholarly research through thematic discussions and close readings of selected works and artists.

This has become significantly more pressing in the light of developments during the last few months, whereby borders, and the complex situation of the multitude of people crossing borders, have become increasingly visible as urgent political issues. Borders have long functioned as a vital component of state-formation and nation building, a role that continues within the shifting politics of globalisation. We have seen recently that their significance is thus subject to ongoing redefinition through a dynamic between a repressive politics of containment and attempts to challenge this. Within these zones of contestation, relationships between geographies and power become both clearly visible and subject to dispute. And although this functions on one level in terms of collective experience, the effects on individuals are also destructive and traumatic. Recently there has been an upsurge in art practices that visualise the tensions and contradictions arising from contemporary borders. However art can also function as a means of disruption and intervention within the established operations and normative meanings of border technologies, and as a site of reparation, where traumatic histories can be negotiated in turn. This one day symposium attempts to address these and related issues.

But it will also grapple with the methodological and philosophical issues raised by Haskell’s provocative approach to the history of collecting. Both days of the conference will be held in the auditorium of St Johns College, Oxford. Delegates at the conference will receive lunch, teas and coffee, and a wine reception at the Ashmolean on Friday 23rd from 18.00-19.30 (this event is free although places are limited so it is essential to register). The fee for attending both days is £80 for professionals (£35 for students); the cost of attending for just one day is £45 for professionals (£20 for students).

It witnessed the championing of the 'New Generation' sculptors at the Whitechapel Gallery under the directorship of Bryan Robertson, although a much fuller and richer image of sculpture that year is to be seen retrospectively today. This two-day international conference, staged at Leeds Art Gallery, The Hepworth Wakefield and Yorkshire Sculpture Park, revisits sculpture made and displayed that year, not only through a reconsideration of the achievements of the forty-one year old Anthony Caro, but also through those of many other sculptors who were active at this time in Britain.

Applicants are encouraged to consider a wide range of methodologies in consideration of viewership and the medieval work of art, from original display environments or the significance of works that were partially hidden out of view, to the impact of other sensory experiences that once contributed to the interaction with and viewing of a work of art. Speakers may also wish to explore differences in medieval and modern categories of viewers and of viewing environments, such as the church or the modern museum. Additionally, participants may also address the extent to which God or the spirit realm were considered participatory audience members, or an object’s apotropaic properties against the seen and unseen. The Medieval Postgraduate Colloquium offers the opportunity for research students at all levels from universities across the UK and abroad to present and promote their research. Unfortunately funding for speakers is not available therefore students from outside London are encouraged to apply to their institutions for subsidies to attend the colloquium. Please send proposals for 15 to 20-minute papers of no more than 250 words and a CV to Maeve.Odonnell@courtauld.ac.uk and bkeene@getty.edu (Bryan Keene), no later than Friday 2 October 2015.

The period’s prestige is based largely on the achievements of the early Renaissance in Italy, and although this concentration has not gone unchallenged, the contest has itself been conducted in narrow terms with the art of the Burgundian Netherlands as the main contender. Art away from these privileged regions tends to remain the preserve of national histories and is comparatively little known. This international conference, supported by the British Academy, casts light on neglected aspects of European art and urges a wider frame of reference. The history of Renaissance art in general has long been urged to adopt a wider scope and especially to engage with the world beyond Europe. However, the leap to a global focus threatens to marginalize still further currently neglected parts of Europe, and it would be a missed opportunity if the discipline failed to engage with Europe at its fullest extent and especially with the ‘new Europe’ which has emerged after 1989. The conference concentrates on Central and Eastern Europe as rich and complex regions of critical importance in the modern world but whose artistic heritages are little known and little understood. The first day, 17 September, comprises a series of presentations which highlight the variety and richness of the art of the period and raise the question of what can be gained by the sustained study of an expanded range of material. Attendance is free and open to all but booking is essential. To book a place please visit https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/frontiers-of-fifteenth-century-art-international-conference-tickets-17582949074 The second day, 18 September, provides an extended opportunity for discussion. Taking the presentations of day one as a starting point, the event will invite participants to consider why we study what we study in the history of the visual arts of this period, and why it matters. Attendance is free but numbers are limited.

They are inviting two types of proposals: - 20-minute papers for a scholarly panel that respond to the CFP (see below) entitled “Method, Material and Meaning: Technical Art History and the Study of Prints” - 5-minute presentations for the Graduate Student Lightning Round. Proposed papers should come from current graduate students at the dissertation stage.

Please indicate in the subject line which type of paper (scholarly session or lightning round) you are proposing and apply to only one session type. Non-members may submit abstracts, but presenters must be APS members by the time of the symposium. Method, Material, and Meaning: Technical Art History and the Study of Prints Technical art history, an interdisciplinary methodology with growing popularity among scholars, curators, and conservators, draws connections between an object’s making and its interpretation. The application of technical art history to the study of prints is particularly fruitful as printmakers often draw upon diverse and complex techniques in order to generate imagery. From the sixteenth-century engravings of Hendrik Goltzius, who skillfully imitated other media, to the prints of contemporary artist Kiki Smith, who produces fleshy bodies on thin, skin-like Gampi paper, printmakers throughout history have engaged a variety of processes and materials in order to elicit particular ideas, emotions, or interactions. The selection of technique, matrix, ink, varnish or support may have a profound effect on the final product and its meaning. This conference seeks to investigate the relationship between specific technical choices made by printmakers, printers, or publishers in order to rethink more broadly the relationship between process, material and meaning in the graphic arts. We seek papers that focus on a wide range of chronological periods and geographic locations in order to highlight overarching methodological issues. Questions to consider: - How can technical analysis aid in understanding artists’ strategic decisions, including their use of printmaking within a larger multimedia practice? - What can conservation science tell us about the life and contemporary importance of a print? - How has print scholarship grown beyond connoisseurship, towards a more holistic account of engagement with the viewer? - How does the transfer of information from the matrix to the receiving surface affect the resulting imagery and its significance?

Edgar Degas 1834-1917, the French Impressionist painter, lithographer, etcher and sculptor, is known for his virtuosic chalk and graphite technique. Sessions introduce the historically specific materials and technique of a particular master draughtsman-or-woman. This involves not only the composition and handling of certain tools but also the mind set of the artist: what he-or-she looked for, valued, prioritised in representing the human figure. Each session will involve short demonstrations by Theo Rhyn interspersed with experimentation time along with optional one to one feedback at the easel. Future sessions will include artists from Michelangelo and Ingres to Oskar Schlemmer and RB Kitaj.

This research has provided histories of Africa in the Italian imaginary and of the work of Italian artists, writers, architects, filmmakers, and other cultural practitioners who visited Italian colonies in Italian North Africa (Africa Settentrionale Italiana, or ASI; Libya, briefly Tunisia and western Egypt) and Italian East Africa (Africa Orientale Italiana, or AOI; Somalia, Eritrea, Ethiopia, and the Greek Dodecanese Islands), providing an Italian cultural history in and around Africa. By contrast, however, relatively little attention has been given to African cultural engagements with Italian colonialism, especially in the field of art history, where it has been all but absent. Indeed, in spite of recent efforts in literary and architectural studies to account for these missing histories, an Africanist history of the rich and diverse artistic, performance-based, and cinematic practices that negotiated, resisted, and responded to Italian colonialism has yet to be provided. This panel addresses this gap in the art historical discourse by inviting papers on the active navigation of Italian colonialism and its legacies by African artists on the Continent and in the Diaspora. Rather than privileging the historical timeline of Italian imperial rule, it welcomes topics that also engage pre- and post-colonial histories, from the mid-nineteenth century through the present. In so doing, the panel aims to provide a platform for the constellation of an Africanist history of these practices that will balance, complicate, and respond to a growing scholarly field that––despite the excellence of its research––has nevertheless prioritized histories of the colonizing culture. Paper topics might include: Legacies of Italian colonialism, cultural institutions and nationalism in the former AOI and ASI; art and activism, both anti-colonialist and nationalist; the Mahber Tewasew Deqqabbat (Indigenous Theater Association) and Eritrean cultural activism; African neo-realism in Somali, Ethiopic, or Maghrebi cinemas; African comic books and Italian fumetti; the negotiation of African and Italian identity and cultural hybridity in contemporary African art; and the problem of documentation and the artistic reconstruction of colonial histories of north and east Africa, among others. Papers on architectural topics are also welcome, but should prioritize discussion of African architecture over the colonialist built environment. Submission Guidelines for Speakers: Proposals should include a 250–500 word abstract, one-page CV including contact information (as well as summer address and telephone, if applicable), and a completed CAA session participation proposal form, available on the last page of the CAA 2016 Call for Participation (http://www.collegeart.org/pdf/2016CallforParticipation.pdf). Complete proposals should be submitted via e-mail to Tenley Bick at tenleybick@gmail.com by 9am PST, Friday, Jun. 19, 2015. This panel is free and open to the public.

However, Rodin’s own developments were challenged by his successors and marginalised contemporaries who further pursued the aesthetic revolution catalysed by the French master sculptor. The conference’s objectives include the task to see how this new language related to various daring exponents of sculpture such as the Italian Medardo Rosso (1858-1928), the more recent Swiss sculptor Hans Josephsohn (1920-2012), the Maltese contemporaries Antonio Sciortino (1879-1947) and Josef Kalleya (1898-1998) and the abstract monumentality of Henry Moore (1898-1986), amongst others. The conference aims to create a trans-cultural scholarly relationship between the mentioned European sculptors and other relevant artists. It endeavors to question and debate the artistic hegemonic relationship between Rodin and these sculptural exponents. The conference is to further analyse the works of those pioneering sculptors who directed art towards original modes of representation within their respective socio-political situation and the international context. With the participation of: Prof. Aline Magnien (Rodin Museum, Paris) Dr. Julia Kelly (Loughborough University) Prof. Joseph Paul Cassar (University of Maryland University College) Dr. Giuseppe Schembri Bonaci (University of Malta) Academics and researchers are invited to submit proposals for papers which deal with the theme of the conference.

The Project (https://eticproject.wordpress.com/ ) studies Indian cities as crucibles of cross-cultural encounter, with special focus on Goa, Pondicherry, Kolkata, and Chandigarh. Over the past two years, with numerous seminars, research projects, lectures and presentations, and two International Workshops held in Kolkata and Liverpool, the Project has brought together a variety of interdisciplinary approaches to urban studies, cultural history, on-site research, archives, city planning, architecture, the city in art and representation, collective memory and communities in the city. In the third International Workshops, held at Jadavpur University on 17-18 August 2015, papers are welcome for presentations on urban encounters and exchanges through individual and community histories and histories of objects (people and things), through city-spaces, buildings, streets, water-bodies, and their transformations (places) and through forms of ‘envisioning the city’ (plans). The Workshop will be open to reflections to other Indian cities in addition to our designated four in order to allow for comparative reflections and insights. Themes for papers and panels may include, but are not restricted to, the following: • Individuals, objects, and communities in the city: traces, stories, anecdotes, histories, intercultural exchanges • Space and place in the city: localities, buildings, suburbia, streets, docks, water-bodies, representations • Planning the city: health, sanitation, garbage, networks, roads, the urban sprawl Presenters are asked to focus particularly on cross-cultural encounters and exchanges between Europe and Asia in developing any of these or other topics, in keeping with the ETIC Project theme.

The workshops are guided by Bruno Frey (Center for Research in Economics, Management and the Arts, Switzerland), Franz Schultheis (Chair of Sociology, University of St. Gallen, Switzerland) and Karen van den Berg (Chair of Art Theory and Curating, Zeppelin University). Drawing on their expertise they will allow insights into their current research projects. The focus will be on providing students with ideas and methodologies with which to tackle the pressing questions and to examine critically existing approaches within the field. Both Master’s and PhD students will be able to gain new understandings into the range of possibilities for research within this area. The summer school will be completed by an excursion to Art Basel, generally considered the most important art fair in the world. Here, only a two–hour train ride away from Zeppelin University, participants will have a unique and privileged opportunity to engage with some of the most influential individuals in the art market field.

It aims to map the state of the field in this growing area of interest for nineteenth-century scholars by locating recent interdisciplinary work on sentimentality and art and writing and the senses within wider debates about the relationship between psychology and aesthetics in the long-nineteenth century. Speakers will investigate the physiology and psychology of aesthetic perception and the mind/body interactions at play in the experience of a wide range of arts. Key questions include: How did Victorian artists represent feeling and how were these feelings aestheticised? What rhetorical strategies did Victorian writers use to figure aesthetic response? What expressive codes and conventions were familiar to the Victorians? Which nineteenth-century scientific developments affected artistic production and what impact did these have on affective reactions? The conference includes a panel discussion on the topic of ‘Curating Feeling’ with speakers Michael Hatt, Lynda Nead and Alison Smith.

Jon Schueler’s decision to move to a remote location in the Scottish Highlands at the height of his ascendancy in the New York artworld was based on a chance meeting and the notion of a promised land. In 1957 when he was showing as an Abstract Expressionist artist with the Leo Castelli Gallery, New York, he moved to the village of Mallaig overlooking the Sound of Sleat. Schueler’s confrontation with the Highland seascape was an intense, emotional experience but his response finds articulation in a remarkably controlled gestural language. At one stroke he lifts the approach to the Scottish landscape out of the drawing room with all its picturesqueness, its ancientness, its ethnographical oddities, its ‘otherness’ into another scale, another intensity, another presence, another ‘self’. Kenneth White in writing about living a “transnational atopia” quotes from Roger Caillois: “In any constituted symmetry, a partial and non-accidental break can occur … Its effect is to enrich the structure or the organism in which it arises by endowing them with a new property” (White’s emphasis). The balancing of a language of abstraction with a response to the landscape or seascape has occupied artists on both sides of the Atlantic throughout the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Papers are invited that engage with current scholarship to provide a theoretical, historiographical or methodological account of this discourse. Papers may discuss any artists or collections in the light of this discourse, but it is to be noted that the papers will feature in the context of a symposium focused on Jon Schueler. The life and work of Jon Schueler (1916 – 1992) is being celebrated by hosting the international symposium at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, The University of the Highlands and Islands, on the Isle of Skye. A small exhibition of Schueler artworks will accompany the symposium and extend through the month of June. Submitting a Proposal Deadline: 30 June 2015 Proposals should include: • A title and abstract (maximum 250 words) • The name, contact details and institutional affiliation of the author.

A collaboration between The University of York and The Hepworth Wakefield The Hepworth Wakefield is currently staging the first UK retrospective of the American artist Lynda Benglis. Since the 1960s she has explored the materiality of a wide range of media including wax, polyurethane, bronze, textiles, glass, and clay. Benglis trained as a ceramicist early in her career, returning to the medium in the 1990s and the exhibition foregrounds this work as an integral part of her practice. This roundtable will use Benglis' ceramic works as a point of departure for looking at the use of the medium by artists working outside of the field of craft in the UK. The backdrop of Studio Ceramics provides a further context given The Hepworth Wakefield's continuing exploration of British Modernism and the proximity of York's newly established CoCA (Centre of Ceramic Arts). However, while the relationship between British Studio Ceramics and its place within modernist discourse is an important reference point for many contemporary artists working in the UK today, others take their influence from elsewhere, for example the Californian Funk ceramics of artists like Keith Arneson or expressionist works of Peter Voulkos. This roundtable brings together contemporary practitioners whose work uses ceramics to encourage discussion around a series of questions: Why are ceramics so visible within contemporary artistic practice today? What is the role of the collective or workshop model in contemporary practice? What is the relationship between craft and art now? Is the ceramic medium wedded to traditional forms?

Article-length manuscripts might inquire how museums and archives are critically and creatively problematizing belonging and possession; or consider the ways they make known that collections belong to their institutions or how collections are no longer owned or controlled by them or by previously identified makers, collectors, donors, or sites of origin; how and why collections have lost connections to cultural, social or political groups such as schools, workshops, families, communities, organizations, or nation states; and the ways, correspondingly, that museums and archives alter how collections are known, valued, displayed, taught, or remembered. We aim to identify examples and practices by which museums and archives problematize their investments in collections and these collections’ histories, lineages, ways of knowing and being, and the reception and memories they encourage. Papers are invited from curators, archivists, collections managers, preparators, registrars, researchers, and graduate students relating to these themes. Papers are also invited that: consider the manner with which possessing or dispossessing collections relates to changes in the identity of an institution, its staff and scholarship, or its donors or programs; analyze how museums and archives revise the ways their collections contribute to them economically or culturally, or reconsider how they belong to an institution through the scholarly, pedagogic, or political value they impart; convey the power of collections to affiliate with or dispossess scholarly or lay accounts of their history or use; and examine how narratives of display, exhibition or publication reinforce or alter the ways collections belong to a museum, archive, place, community, or to a body of knowledge or a field. Interested authors should contact the editors to express interest by July 1, 2015. The deadline for submission is September 30, 2015.

This session proposes a critical interrogation of the diverse histories of French art since 1780 to the present day. The convenors welcome papers that look outside of, challenge, or run counter to hegemonic narratives. What critical possibilities (if any) remain for the study of French art’s modernities? They encourage approaches that interrelate the histories of specific images, objects, or narratives with reflection on the writing of those histories, or on broader historiographical tendencies, so that a set of fresh perspectives may emerge on this enduring yet highly mutable relationship between art history and modern France.

While none of his works on paper survive, research conducted in the past decade by the Opificio delle Pietre Dure and the Sherman Fairchild Paintings Conservation Center at the Metropolitan Museum of Art has revealed Piero’s obsessive working and reworking of compositions. Disegno, in the period sense of the term, was also a problem-solving tool, a catalyst for invention, and an effective means of communication. Problems raised by Piero’s earliest known work, the Baptism (National Gallery, London) which was part of the San Giovanni d’Afra triptych (Museo Civico, Sansepolcro), introduce the practical and conceptual implications of Piero’s approach to disegno and will serve to open this conference. The following sessions will be dedicated to the composition of his frescoes, the role of underdrawings in his paintings, the use of geometrical figures in his mathematical treatises, and the transmission of his style.

The student will be affiliated with The Queen’s College, Oxford. This Collaborative Doctoral Partnership will contextualise IWM’s curatorial and collecting focus on contemporary art, with the aim of informing the Museum’s long-term thinking for the IWM Contemporary programming strand. In particular, the CDP will locate the IWM’s curatorial practice within global discourses of ‘contemporaneity’ - and around the significance of dialogue and conflict within any approach to contemporary art - while profiling artists whose works epitomise the shifting presentation and understanding of geopolitical conflict.

The image of the artist as an individual of exceptional vision and allure endures, provoking interest in the artist ‘behind’ the work. Recognizing the agency of this appeal, both within the clear frame of artistic production and in so-called public life, artists have employed their ‘selves’ as raw material – as an instrument or a medium – to present, stage, modify, amplify, fictionalize, or critique. When consistent over time, such self-presentations imply the creation of a persona: a fusion of natural identity and artificiality, role-playing and theatrical enactment. This issue Kunstlicht investigates the hidden tradition of personas in art history. The editorial board welcomes theoretical essays as well as (comparative) case studies. Authors may propose topics as diverse as (re)definitions of ‘persona’, (re)contextualizations of existing biographies, parallels with other art forms and non-artistic cases, or discourse analyses. Proposals (200 – 300 words) with attached résumés can be submitted until April 14, 2014. Selected authors will be invited to write a 2,000 – 3,000-word paper (excluding notes). Papers may be written either in English or in Dutch, although they insist that native Dutch speakers write in Dutch. Authors who publish in Kunstlicht will receive three complementary copies. Kunstlicht does not provide an author’s honorarium. Two years following publication, papers will be submitted to the freely accessible online archive. This issue will appear in print, and additionally will feature a number of articles published online.

Building upon the technical findings of the Reynolds Research Project at the Wallace Collection, and also on a range of recent conservation projects on Reynolds’s paintings, it will explore his distinctive manipulation of paint as a medium. Papers will offer new perspectives on Reynolds’s experimental forms of pictorial composition, narrative and allusion, and to look afresh at the dynamic interactions between the artist, his sitters and his models in the studio. As well as focusing on Reynolds’s own art in detail, the conference seeks to place his experimental activities within the context of wider artistic, cultural and scientific practices of the eighteenth century. Tickets can be purchased via Eventbrite - General Admission: £65 (+ admin fee) - Concession: £45 (+ admin fee) Refreshments, lunch and a drinks reception are included in the ticket price.

In the visual arts surface has often been seen as sources of meanings and visual information or a self-contained aesthetic whole, exclusively associated with decoration or ornamentation. Jeff Koons prompts us to grapple with what is manifest in the world of objects: skins, materials, even picture planes and varnishes. Koons’ metal ‘balloon animals’ and ‘cartoonish’ mirrors can offer a point of departure to think about the wider field of the weight of surface effects. While certain kinds of object are often treated as if they lack a surface, or are read as entirely ‘surface’. Certain objects prompt us to think about the skin that enfolds them and yet others seem to blind us to their interior. From new developments in Phenomenology and Affect Theory to New Materialism and Thing Theory, they welcome papers which challenge received ideas concerning ‘surface’ in a variety of historical and contemporary contexts. The Sainsbury Centre for Modern Art, UEA and Norwich Castle Museum welcome diverse papers on art historical and visual cultural subjects, thinking through the idea of ‘Surface’. They encourage submissions which critique the idea of surface as supplement, and which engage related concepts such as: friction, edge, depth and (in)visibility. This one-day conference will include guest speakers and an introductory tour of Norwich Castle Museum’s new Jeff Koons exhibition, as well as coffee, a drinks reception and an optional lunch. To submit a proposal for a 20-minute presentation, the require an abstract not exceeding 300 words and a brief professional biography of 100 words by 25th March 2015.

The night has been conceptualized, within poetic and scholarly works, as territory, parenthesis, substance and scène: Likewise, the night has inspired distinctive categories of artistic expression, from the musical and visual nocturne through the film noir. Recently, cartographies of the urban night offer increasingly complex ways of rendering that night in visual or audiovisual terms. All of these treatments of the night are engaged, explicitly or implicitly, in defining a broader expressive economy of the night. Inhabiting (the night) will bring together texts which examine the variety of ways in which the urban night is marked by those media which map, structure, represent and transform it.

McGill Art History and Communication Studies Graduate Student Conference, Canada]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/00000001612 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/00000001612 Conference Date: April 24, 2015. McGill University, Montréal. What is silence? How is it kept or broken? Silence is often used to describe who and what is repressed and subjugated: “being silenced” and “not having a voice.” This conference aims to explore the relations between silence, the unspeakable and the unheard, as well as the ways in which silence is represented, interpreted, and subverted. If silence has become a form of quiet consent in an age where power and language are one, how can we rethink silence as an expression of resistance or subversion? By creating a silent space where the voices of the “unspoken” can be heard, how can silence resist and subvert dominant discourses? How can we be attuned to the cacophony of silences and their multiple meanings? They invite graduate students, academics, artists, activists, and independent researchers to submit 20-minute conference paper proposals that address silence and various forms of silencing as object of study, metaphor, and methodology. Possible topics include, but are not limited to: -Silenced Subjectivities -Feminist/Critical Race Theory Critiques of Language and Considerations of Silence -Silence as Exclusion and/or Violence -Silenced Histories -Quiet Forms of Resistance -Body Talk/Body Language -Political Silence and Political Silencing -Sounds and/of Silence -The Aesthetics of Silence -Silence and the Urban Soundscape -Silence and Architecture, Visual Art, Cinema, Dance, Theatre and Performance. -The Practice of Censorship/Anonymous Authorship -Considerations of Deafness and Disability -The Time of Silence -Critiques of the Concept of Silence Contact and further information details: ACHS Conference Committee: ahcs2015@gmail.com; https://ahcsconference.wordpress.com/ Deadline for booking or submission: Paper proposals (max 500 words) should be sent to ahcs2015@gmail.com by March 1st, 2015.]]> Sun, 28 May 2017 04:37:52 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Research Curator, Turner Contemporary ]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/00000001611 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/00000001611 The Waste Land is an exhibition inspired by T.S Eliot’s seminal 20th Century poem, through which we will develop a new research model that involves coordinating a number of research volunteers from our local community.

Proposals should be no longer than 300 words. The premise of this conference is that consideration of the Delphic maxim can be productively channeled into interrogating the role of the image in relation to the self: How might images mobilise the philosophical challenge to “know thyself”? What are the mechanisms within images that invite participation in the practices of self-discovery and self-representation? The conference aims to explore the role of visuality in the early modern pursuit of self-knowledge in a broad sense. As such, it invites approaches to visual material by which the Delphic maxim is evoked knowingly, or otherwise. Focusing on images from the period c.1500-c.1800, proposals for papers may include, but are by no means limited to: mortality and bodily materiality, cultural identity and difference (race, religion, gender…), subjectivity and self-fashioning, and encounters with the new world and new technologies. Please send abstracts of no more than 300 words to Sophie Morris sophie.morris@ucl.ac.uk and Nathanael Price n.price.12@ucl.ac.uk by 2nd February 2015 For further information and to submit your proposals please visit: http://www.ucl.ac.uk/art-history/staff-research/call_for_papers ]]> Sun, 28 May 2017 04:37:52 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Call for Papers - Christopher Dresser Symposium- July 3rd 2015]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/00000001599 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/00000001599 Christopher Dresser Symposium- July 3rd 2015 The Christopher Dresser Society/ Teesside University/The Dorman Museum – Middlesbrough Recent scholarship on the Victorian designer Christopher Dresser has focused on the practices of collecting and curating his work, the identification of relationships with manufacturers and the locations and inspirations for his products and designs. Dresser is a specific example of a designer influenced by the technological advances of the nineteenth century. He is also representative of the ways in which cultural and scientific forces shaped Victorian values and behaviours. How can a greater awareness of these contexts help us to understand both Dresser’s and other designers’ work more easily? The aim of this symposium is to consider new research which may serve to contextualise Victorian design generally, and the work of Dresser specifically. Notably, • The influence of Japanese, Chinese and Asian travels, writings and artefacts. • The nature and impact of scientific writings and studies. • The role of the art and design schools and museums • The role of pattern books and ‘artistic’ publications. The Christopher Dresser Society is keen to receive submissions from scholars and connoisseurs working in areas within and beyond art and design history. Submissions from historians of science (botany), travel, museology, collecting, pedagogy, connoisseurship and publishing are actively encouraged to contribute. The Society will distribute the symposium proceedings via the Christopher Dresser Society website. Discussion is also under way for select papers to be published in an appropriate publication. Proposal submission Deadline: 28 February 2015 For further information and details on how to submit your proposal please visit: http://www.tees.ac.uk/schools/sam/christopherdresser/news_story.cfm?story_id=4854&this_issue_title=January%202015&this_issue=260 ]]> Sun, 28 May 2017 04:37:52 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Conference - Sister Act: Female Monasticism and the Arts across Europe ca. 1250 – 1550]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/00000001598 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/00000001598 Sister Act: Female Monasticism and the Arts across Europe ca. 1250 – 1550 13.45 – 18.30, Friday 13 March 2015 09.30 – 16.30, Saturday 14 March 2015 Kenneth Clark Lecture Theatre, The Courtauld Institute of Art, Somerset House, Strand, London WC2R 0RN This conference will compare, contrast and juxtapose recent scholarly approaches to the art of religious women from approximately 1250 to 1550. Its primary aim is to foster exchange between scholars working on different European regions, ranging from the German-speaking areas of Europe, across the Italian peninsula to the still heavily understudied material in England, Spain, Scandinavia and Eastern Europe. The speakers will examine female monastic art and architecture in terms of devotion and ritual, patronage, space, communal identity and artistic practice.

The conference seeks to reimagine the artwork as a space of compossibility in which multiple worlds, both real and potential, past and future, coexist. The present conference invites papers to intermix different scales of worlds, from the world in miniature to a world in collapse. Recent debates in art history have emphasised the artwork’s potential to represent global phenomena: conflict, ecological catastrophe and the flows of capital. Lost in these discussions is the fact that the artwork may also be understood as a world in and of itself. The artwork is of this world, but it is not reducible to it. From the sculptural practice of Camille Henrot to the performances of Marvin Gaye Chetwynd, attention paid to the particularity of the artwork reveals its potential to actualize speculative fictions in which worlds are formed and collapsed. Though the period addressed by the conference finds its beginnings with the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, an event that for many heralds the era of globalisation, Working Worlds also invites papers that draw lines of continuity between the modern and the post-modern, and thereby seek to challenge existing narratives that draw too firm a line between these historical periods. Working Worlds proposes three panels with topics not exclusively related to: 1. The work of the artwork / worldmaking / the artwork as theory 2. Artistic labour / digital labor / artwork as situation / artwork as event / cognitive mapping 3. Institution / artworld / capitalism as global process Speakers should be prepared to present papers for 25 min followed by a discussion.

This conference is motivated by the premise that it is appropriate for feminist art history to re-visit and newly configure theoretical, methodological and political debate around modernist, postmodernist and contemporary artistic practice in relation to the domestic. Having been a significant focus of 1980s feminist art-historical scholarship, domesticity has since been eclipsed in feminist analysis by focus on corporeality, subjectivity and globalisation, amongst other significant concepts. This conference seeks to evaluate the intellectual and political gains, and potentially losses, to be made from investing once again in existing feminist theoretical frameworks, including the materialist, the psychoanalytical and the postcolonial. It also invites contributions framed by alternative or more recent modes of feminist enquiry, including those constituted through the framework of artistic practice itself. The sexual politics of domestic, artistic, and scholarly labour, productive agency, and the obedient or disobedient domestic imaginary might constitute one focus, however, these are by no means the only or defining parameters of this conference’s aim to engage with a feminist politics and practice of home making and unmaking since the late nineteenth century.

This special issue follows on the international symposium The Enlightened Image: History and Uses of Projection in which projection was considered mainly as an optical device. The publication intends to further this discussion by emphasizing aspects of cultural history so as to reveal the paradigmatic nature of projection. Special attention will be paid to issues of reception, that is, to the uses of projection, the ways in which it has been conceived and represented, as well as to the metaphorical uses of the term “projection.” From geometry to science fiction and alchemy, the many meanings of projection extend beyond the notion of an optical device while at the same time add to our understanding of the latter.

Papers can also approach the topic of the minor arts from a variety of perspectives, including reception, patronage, gender issues, propaganda, and iconography. Please send abstracts of 150–250 words and a 1-page cv to Julia C. Fischer (julia.fischer@lamar.edu) by Wednesday, December 31, 2014.  ]]> Sun, 28 May 2017 04:37:52 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Call for papers - Memory, sentiment, body, space, object: Dialogues across and between dance and art]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/00000001566 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/00000001566 Format for submissions Paper presentations are limited to 20 minutes.

In the face of ecological crisis, contestation of borders, and the expansion of the digital sphere, they are seeking graduate papers with a focus on the visual that question what constitutes landscape and how and where landscapes can be located in order to interrogate the cultural work they do. They wish to bring together fresh perspectives on landscape, going beyond concepts of re-claiming or re-constructing landscapes and instead exploring how and why the kinds of landscapes we encounter can include the terrain of the body, online gamer interactions, as well as local food gardens. They are inviting graduate students in art history and related disciplines to submit a current CV and a 250-300 word abstract for a 20-minute presentation to be presented at the symposium, which will be accompanied by a corresponding exhibition and artist round-table. They are able to provide partial funding for participants. Topics may include, but are not limited to: • Practices of de-naturalizing landscape • Landscape as a communication practice – its translations and mistranslations • Terrain as materiality • Bodily and private landscapes • Digital landscapes and their systems and avatars • Mental, celestial or dream landscapes – the terrain of the subjective • Contemporary ecological or environmental artistic social practice involving gardens, food tourism, labor, housing, etc. • Critical responses to boundaries and mapping of urban/suburban/rural categories • Issues of land claims and sovereignties • The terrain of art historical practices in landscape For more information and to submit your proposal please contact: Laura Shea LBarone2@illinois.edu  ]]> Sun, 28 May 2017 04:37:52 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Call for Papers - Study day on ‘Neoclassical Church Monuments in Britain (1770-1840)]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/00000001559 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/00000001559 For more information please visit: http://www.churchmonumentssociety.org/CMS_Events.html Please email initial proposals of 300 words to Dr Clive Easter cliveeaster100@yahoo.co.uk and Miss Barbara Tomlinson BBToml@rmg.co.uk by 30th April 2015.]]> Sun, 28 May 2017 04:37:52 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Conference - Art, Craft & the Fin-de-Siècle: Britain and Russia (Part II) - The End of Empire: Women Artists in Britain and Russia, 1880-1917]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/00000001557 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/00000001557 For further details, see: http://www.courtauld.ac.uk/researchforum/events/2015/spring/BritainRussia.shtml]]> Sun, 28 May 2017 04:37:52 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Conference - Art, Craft & the Fin-de-Siècle: Britain and Russia (Part I) - From Firebird to Fabergé: British-Russian Artistic Exchange, 1880-1917]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/00000001556 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/00000001556 www.wattsgallery.org.uk) which has been jointly organised with the V.

This one-day symposium will address the hand both as the means and the subject of representation in Early Modern art and visual culture. Traditionally held to be subordinate to the creative drive of the mind, the artist's hand may also be considered as an autonomous agent, manifesting itself through individual style, the manipulation of media or as an iconographic motif. How did artists conceive the relation between intellectual and manual labour? How was the human hand represented in different contexts, from scientific treatises to portraits and drawing manuals? Papers will investigate the role of drawing in artistic training, as well as the representation of gesturing in complex pictorial compositions. A workshop with Linda Karshan, an artist whose practice revolves around the exploration of the process of drawing, will allow the participants to move beyond the early modern period and examine the status of the hand in contemporary artistic practice.   Organised by Aust?ja Mackelait? and Camilla Pietrabissa (The Courtauld Institute of Art).

How are the exhibitions that are being re-staged and/or written about, being selected? What are the criteria of selection, in other words: how is the canon of exhibition history being established? What does the current trend of exhibition re-enactment add to the art historical appreciation of these exhibitions? And what does it imply for the field of art history and curating/exhibition making? Are we simply re-iterating an already written art history, or does exhibition history allow for other and/more critical tools to approach history. In other words: what is the surplus value of the turn to exhibition history in both theory and curatorial practice? They are inviting contributors to critically reflect on the influence of the rereading of museum exhibitions on the canon of modern and contemporary art, and the (im)possibilities of rewriting art history through the re-enactment of historical exhibitions. Please submit your abstract before November 15, 2014. Deadline for the essay will be February 15, 2015. The theme issue Re-writing or Re-affirming the Canon?

By mapping the pop phenomenon from a global perspective – encompassing pop art produced in the 1960s and 1970s in Eastern Europe, Latin America, Asia and the Middle East, as well as Western Europe and the US – the exhibition will seek to challenge historiographic narratives that affirm the dominant position of New York art and will explore pop beyond the mainstream.   The often ambivalent and subversive nature of these global manifestations of pop is of particular importance. Reacting to the growing dominance of the American post-war economy and media around the world, pop art sometimes took the form of a destabilising reversal of the normative messages associated with American mass culture and consumerism. By surveying these global engagements with pop, the exhibition will offer an opportunity to re-examine pop’s origins and politics, as well as question its existence and significance as a global movement. To accompany this exhibition, Tate Papers aims to publish a range of scholarly articles addressing pop as a truly global phenomenon. Tate Papers is an online, peer-reviewed research journal that publishes scholarly articles that reflect Tate’s collection, exhibitions and activities as an art museum. If you are interested in submitting an article, please contact the Managing Editor, Christopher Griffin, at christopher.griffin@tate.org.uk. Articles accepted for publication following peer review will be published in the autumn issue of Tate Papers in 2015.

Therefore, the art market should be an integral part of the art historical dialogue today, not a mere external factor. Yet, art history as a field is falling behind by not considering the market seriously within the context of its own discipline. The aim of this conference is to redefine the role of the market in the critical approach to art history. The organisers encourage art historians and those of other humanities disciplines to analyze the art market manifestations in approaches other than solely numerical. Crossing-over different fields of expertise and methodologies can inform the way art historians engage with art and the markets. Suggested topics include the following: • Do markets function as a lens through which to examine issues of gender, race, globalization and class? • The role of connoisseurship in a market-driven art world • Do art markets in emerging countries reflect regional or global values on aesthetics, culture or capital? In addition to these suggested topics, the organisers invite any new approaches or methodological proposition to frame discussions of the market and the practice of art history as a discipline. This symposium encourages submissions that consider a wide range of topics, all of which privilege the interaction between art, institutions, patrons and collectors with the market. Papers should be approximately 20 minutes in length. Visual presentations are mandatory. Please submit an abstract of no more than 250 words to Veronique Chagnon-Burke at vchagnon-burke@christies.edu.

An active member of the universities and colleges group (as it then was) and Editor of the Bulletin (1974–77), Andrew was a familiar presence and contributor at AAH conferences through the 1980s and 1990s. Having commenced his teaching career at Portsmouth College of Art and St Martin’s, before taking up a lectureship in History of Art at the University of Manchester in 1972 (Professor 1997, Professor Emeritus 1998), Andrew was singularly well fitted to build the bridges that were much needed following the Coldstream and Summerson reports of 1960 and 1963, which addressed the importance of Art History and complementary studies in art schools. On graduating from Cambridge in 1962, Andrew worked as a freelance art critic, completing his PhD on Paul Nash at the Courtauld Institute in 1973. This breadth of approach to understanding the visual arts and to writing about them, and his profound interest in contemporary art practice, remained with Andrew throughout his life and is manifest in his many publications on 20th-century British art (sculpture since 1945, Edward Burra, Peter Lanyon, Paul Nash, Ivon Hitchins, Barbara Hepworth, Edward Wadsworth, Mark Gertler, Wyndham Lewis, Harold Gilman, amongst others). Andrew always knew what was going on in the art world and seldom missed a show, whether with a dealer or in a public gallery. Thanks to the dedicated care of his wife, Sue Causey, a distinguished Russian linguist who predeceased him by a couple of weeks following a tragic accident, Andrew was able to spend his final days at home where he looked from his bed at a Peter Lanyon on the wall and out to a garden full of roses. Andrew Causey served as internal examiner for my PhD in 1974 because my supervisor by that time had retired. I remember being very nervous when faced with him and the external, Professor Andrew McLaren Young from Glasgow. Andrew was courteous and charming, characteristics that never left him; those who visited him during his last illness were often astonished by his ability to remain a gracious host from his hospital bed. Educated at Eton and Cambridge, he knew how to engage people and how to make the most of a sense of occasion; it is unsurprising that he was picked by the group of Heads of Department at the formation meeting at the Barber Institute (of which he speaks in his interview with Liz Bruchet AAH Oral Histories) to represent younger colleagues on the AAH steering group. I also remember that event in the summer of 1973 and meeting Peter Lasko, Andrew Martindale and Peter Fitzgerald. As a post-doc at the Barber, I was invited to attend even though I had no proper post at that time. I got to know Andrew well as a colleague when I moved from Sussex to be Pilkington Professor and Head of Department at the University of Manchester in 1992. The first year was like steering a very old and cumbersome ship in a fog. My trusty guide was Andrew, who was always willing to drop what he was doing and come and explain to me some nicety of what were in those days arcane ways of doing things within a university where, to a newcomer, it could appear that the people really in charge were the janitors; Andrew also had an excellent sense of humour, a strong feel for absurdity, and an ability to take pleasure in good food and company. Thanks to Andrew I steered my way through that first year without major mishap. Those were the years when we had to organise ourselves to deal with teaching-quality audits and research assessment for the first time. While retaining a measured view of the overly bureaucratic demands made on us, Andrew was never a faint heart and always willing to volunteer for tedious administrative tasks, which he undertook with good grace. He had an unwavering sense of loyalty to History of Art at Manchester and when, in the early 1990s, we were able to set up a single BA Hons degree in the History of Modern Art, this became his ‘baby’; there must be countless students who went through that course and benefited from Andrew’s breadth of knowledge and his ability to communicate. Marcia Pointon (former AAH Chair and Editor of Art History) This will also be published in our forthcoming issue of Bulletin, due out in October.  ]]> Sun, 28 May 2017 04:37:52 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Call for Papers - Journal of the Northern Renaissance]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/00000001485 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/00000001485 Journal of the Northern Renaissance, a peer-reviewed, open-access online journal dedicated to the study of both the cultural productions and the concept of the Northern Renaissance, is inviting submission of papers for their upcoming Issue 7, to be released in 2015.

Terms such as 'co-production', 'co-curation' and 'co-creation' are commonly used but what do these actually mean and are these participative approaches still viable? This one-day conference brings together key thinkers and practitioners to debate 'the politics of participation'.
