Appel à communication : Recasting Reproduction (1500-1800) (London, 18 Nov 17)

The contested concept of “reproduction” stands at a critical nexus of the conceptualisation of Early Modern artistic thought. The early modern period has been characterised by the development of novel and efficient reproduction technologies, as well as the emergence of global empires, growing interconnectedness through trade, warfare and conquest, and the rise of new markets and cultures of collecting. This ethos of innovation and cultural exchange was, however, contextualised against myriad contemporary ideologies still rooted in the values and legends of narratives of the past. Reproduction stood at the centre of this dichotomy. Set against the context of changing cultural tastes and the increasingly overlapping public and private spheres, ‘reproductions’ were involved within changing viewing practices, artistic pedagogy, acts of homage and collecting.

Call for Papers: Graduate Student Sessions Graphic Mimicry: Intermediality in Print and the Art of Imitation (Print Think 2017) Tyler School of Art, Temple University Oct. 21-22, 2017

Conference description

Print Think 2017 is co-organized by Amze Emmons and Ashley West, bringing Tyler School of Art’s Art History Department in collaboration with our Printmaking program. This year’s conference, titled Graphic

Mimicry: Intermediality in Print and the Art of Imitation, will examine the intervisual dialogue between prints and other media from both a historical and contemporary perspective of the medium. At the heart of this year’s conference is the fundamental question of how printmaking from its earliest years defined itself in relationship to existing and historically more prominent technologies and media, such as drawing, painting, metalwork, sculpture, and tapestry design.

Appel à communication : L’éventail : image, accessoire et outil gestuel du XVIIème au XVIIIème siècle

© Stéphane Piera / Musée Cognacq-Jay / Roger-Viollet

Type : Appel à communication
Date limite de l’appel : 30 juin 2017
Date de l’événement : 30 novembre et 1er décembre 2017
Lieu : Institut d’Histoire de l’art, Zurich

La conférence va interroger de façon interdisciplinaire l’importance artistique, historique et sociale des éventails européens du XVIIème au XVIIIème siècle. Le regard croisé permettra de discuter la diversité visuelle et matérielle croissante de ces objets multifonctionnels.

Au centre de l’attention sont les éventails pliés qui ont pris leur essor à partir du XVIIème siècle. La représentation picturale des éventails s’emparait des sujets connus de la peinture et de l’estampe contemporaine (incluant des évènements politiques et sociales actuelles) en les encadrant avec des motifs ornementaux. Nous allons donc discuter les éventails en tant que support d’informations mais aussi en tant qu’objet de souvenir et demémoire.

Il ne s’agit pas de traiter les éventails seulement comme support d’image rigide, mais aussi comme un objet en mouvement. Etant un élément important de la mode féminine codée, les éventails étaient un outil de communication non verbale omniprésent au XVIIIème siècle. Si Joseph Addison en 1711 a décrit de façon satirique le pouvoir de cette « modish machine », il manifeste déjà une attribution de fonction qui va s’établir par la suite dans la littérature et la peinture. L’éventail avec ses mouvements fluides d’ouverture et de fermeture obtient désormais la double fonction : dissimuler le visage de la porteuse et au même temps faire voir ses émotions. En outre, la feuille d’éventail pouvait présenter en quelques images passagères une grande diversité de thèmes sociales et des connaissances liés à sa propriétaire.

Nous allons discuter des éventails mais aussi des sources visuelles et littéraires pour démontrer les différents aspects communicatifs de ces objets gestuels. L’objectif est de reconstruire à l’intersection disciplinaire l’importance des éventails comme accessoires populaires et personnalisés du point de vue de la production et du point de vue des utilisateurs.

Des propositions pour les thèmes suivants (mais pas exclusivement) sont les bienvenues :

  • Les éventails peints et imprimés comme support d’informations (politiques et culturelles)
  • L’éventail comme objet de souvenir et/ou objet de mémoire
  • Les sujets de la peinture dans l’art de l’éventail
  • Les éventails dans l’ensemble des accessoires de mode et dans les normes vestimentaires (interrogeant la hiérarchie sociale et le genre masculin/féminin)
  • Le rôle des éventails dans la communication non verbale ; la conception culturelle et sociale des sentiments et des émotions au XVIIIème siècle
  • La représentation des éventails dans l’art (portraits, scènes de genre, caricatures, etc.) et dans la littérature
  • Les ateliers (lieux de production), la clientèle et la commercialisation (globale)
  • Des cas exemplaires de la conservation et restauration des éventails

Nous invitons des historiens/historiennes de l’art, des historiens/historiennes de la mode et des chercheurs/chercheuses des disciplines voisines à envoyer des propositions.

Modalités de soumission :

Les propositions de communication de 20 minutes environ (300 mots maximum ; en allemand, en français, ou en anglais) sont à transmettre par courriel à Dr. Miriam Volmert (miriam.volmert@khist.uzh.ch) et à lic.phil. Danijela Bucher (danijela.bucher@uzh.ch) avant le 30 juin 2017. Les propositions devraient contenir une brève présentation de l’auteur et une liste de mots-clés (six mots env.). La sélection des intervenants va être communiquée le 7 juillet 2017.

Une prise en charge des frais de déplacement est envisagé à condition que la conférence obtient des fonds de tiers.

The Architecture of Commercial Networks 1500–1900

Improvements in communications and transport technology during the early modern period enabled new forms of global connectedness. Exploiting these technologies, European kingdoms were able to extend their reach and influence throughout the world, establishing lucrative markets for exotic goods. Embedded within the processes of imperial expansion and international commercial competition were sophisticated networks of trade relations, embracing metropolitan financial centers and local markets. Characteristic of this chain of transaction were the buildings that gave it physical form—a facilities infrastructure that enabled the processing, storage, and shipment of goods.

This session invites proposals that engage directly with the history of trade and infrastructural architectures in the context of commercial networks. It asks participants to consider ideas of spatial integration and common enterprise that such networks relied upon and engendered.
Questions include: in what ways were buildings concerned with trade shaped by their location within wider networks of related structures? What role did standardization and seriality play in the erections of such buildings? How did corporate identity affect type, style, and ornamentation? And, what relationships existed between spatial organization and technical specification in the ordering, processing, and conservation/preservation of goods?

The session especially welcomes proposals that engage wider historiographic frames of reference, such as regional, oceanic, and World/Global historiographies, methods of cultural and historical geography, the history of ‘things,’ as well as economic and business history, to provide further insight into the extended and systematized nature of networked space. This may include consideration of the colossal joint-stock corporations of the early modern period, such as the Asian and African trading companies of Britain, Holland, and France; smaller national and international mercantile syndicates of early modern Europe; or, later in the nineteenth century, large-scale agricultural, transportation, and mining corporations operating in Africa, the Americas, and Australasia.

Deutsche Gesellschaft für die Erforschung des 18. Jahrhunderts Annual Conference Moral Cultures (Paderborn, September 19-22, 2018)

Hardly any term is as ubiquitous during the 18th century as the term ‘morale’. For Niklas Luhmann the ‘universalization of moral demands’ is a pivotal trigger in the ongoing transformation of society from stratified to functional differentiation:  It forces back religion’s dominance, gives way to those new pedagogical (e. g. Pestalozzi, Weiße), psychological (Erfahrungseelenkunde) and political or juridical concepts (democracy, theories of penalty) that modern societies are based on. Furthermore, the omnipresence of morale is intertwined with the way an aspiring bourgeoisie defines itself and its educational values in opposition to nobility (see Carl Friedrich Bahrdts Handbuch der Moral für den Bürgerstand, 1790).

Northerners in Italy: Negotiating Style, Art Markets, and Comunità Historians of Netherlandish Art (HNA) Sponsored Session

The lure of Italy enticed hundreds of northern European artists to cross the Alps during the early modern period in search of artistic inspiration and fame in centers such as Venice, Rome, and Florence. How these artists negotiated their new surroundings, however, depended upon economic and social factors specific to each particular center. Recent studies focused upon artistic migration, emerging art academies, and expanding art markets in Italy have highlighted how complex and mercurial this process could be. However, a broader study that identifies consistent patterns concerning artistic mobility is still needed. This session seeks to address this lacuna, probing further the process of acclimation for northern European artists in Italy and the effect of travel on artistic practice and theory.

[1] New Directions in Representation of the Italian Landscape [2] Bloodlines: Re-Framing Artists’ Families in the Early Modern Period 

[1] New Directions in Representation of the Italian Landscape

From: Melissa Yuen <melissa.yuen@stanford.edu>

Session Sponsored by the Italian Art Society

Images of the Italian landscape, both real and imagined, have been the subject of many fruitful investigations, from research on broad trends and refined definitions to focused monographs on individual artists. Recent studies have shed new light on the display of landscape paintings in palaces and villas, artistic practice, professional networks, and the intersections between antiquity and natural history. In particular, research into the growing interest in empirical study and the interpretation of nature in early modern Italy has led to a greater understanding of representations of the natural world. This panel seeks papers that build on these themes and present new ways to reconsider the portrayal of the landscape and landscape artists working in Italy. Continuer la lecture

The University of St. Thomas Department of Art History will host its eighth annual Graduate Student Research Symposium, Exhibiting Power, on September 30, 2017 Keynote Speaker: Robert Rydell, Professor of History & Director, Humanities Institute, Montana State University Power hungry. Power grab. Power in numbers. Soft power. Displays of power. The start of 2017 has brought the issue of “power” to the forefront of political, cultural, economic, entertainment, and social debates. Yet, the issue of “power” in art history and museum studies has long been a topic of scholarly research and discussion. Art History has asked how images and objects can visually explain power through signs and symbols, as well as through association with artistic movements and artist groups. Museums, likewise, have questioned their own role in exhibiting power through the examination of display practices, educational models, community-based partnerships, and innovative use of space. In a rapidly changing world, how do art history and museum studies rely on the past for lessons in exhibiting power, while also representing power in new ways? Continuer la lecture
