Ticket/entry details: Open to all, free admission

Organised by: Dr Klara Kemp-Welch

Histories of Argentine art of the 1960s have thus far argued for a progression from formal experimentation to a more overtly political art, what Luis Camnitzer has termed “ideological conceptualism". These teleological accounts invariably posit 1968 as an end-point beyond which artistic practice could go no further, grounding this contention in a rupture with the dominant contemporary art space in Buenos Aires, the radicality of the subsequent Tucumán Arde collaboration, and the ultimate.....read more

Organised by: Professor Joanna Woodall with Dr Eric Jorink

The Dutch Republic of the Golden Age was famous not only for its art production, but also at the heart of the fundamental reconfiguration of knowledge that took place in Europe during the early modern period. Amsterdam especially was a nodal point, of both the emerging world trade and the production of works of art and the development of new scientific ideas. While ‘art’ and ‘science’ are commonly considered to be two distinct expressions of human culture, Eric Jorink will argue that the two were complementary, rather than.....read more

Ticket/entry details: Open to all, free admission

Organised by: Professor Joanna Woodall with Dr Eric Jorink

Willem II van Haecht's Gallery of Cornelis van der Geest (1628) is the best known and most extensively discussed example of the Flemish 'pictures of collections' genre, which rose to prominence in Antwerp in the first half of the seventeenth century. Yet despite the painting's fame, a key aspect of its allegory has been curiously overlooked. This lecture will argue that the image may be read as a celebration of ingenium: a shared attribute of the.....read more

Ticket/entry details: Open to all, free admission

Organised by: Professor Joanna Woodall with Dr Eric Jorink

The combination of coloured wax and human bone in early modern displays of the ‘living’ human body warrants consideration. After all, both of these materials held fraught relations to death, be it wax’s association with the death mask and the votive offering or the proliferation of skulls and skeletons in established visual imagery of the afterlife. But the conceptualization of these materials was also undergoing change, in part due to.....read more
