“People say I pay too much attention to the look of a movie but for God's sake, I'm not producing a Radio 4 Play for Today, I'm making a movie that people are going to look at.” Ridley Scott
In the second of three discussions exploring and critiquing methods of delivering art historical research beyond traditional publishing routes in books or journals, the group will consider art history and the radio.
This event is part of the Performing Art History Special Interest Group, a body that seeks to create a forum for exploring, developing, and critiquing methods of delivering art historical research beyond the traditional publishing routes in books or journals. Novel presentation methods, both in lectures direct to an audience and in the wider broadcast media (TV, Radio, Internet) can be an opportunity for art historians to utilise the wide range of technologies at their disposal. Furthermore, these approaches can be utilised by the art historian to make broader intellectual comment upon the material they are presenting through the medium in which it is presented. As well as exploring new ways to present research, the group will also consider the impact of these methods on the subject, and the methodological implications these new forums present to us as art historians.
