This day-long workshop is an opportunity for a global cohort of interdisciplinary scholars to explore the meanings and histories of revivalism in art, architecture and design from the nineteenth century to the present. Participants’ areas of interest include the Bauhaus, western tattooing practices, the nineteenth-century rediscovery of Botticelli, the aesthetics of futurity, the Gothic Revival, empire, murals, woodcuts in the Weimar Republic, Mariano Fortuny, reinventing a Taiwanese hotel, and much else. Research strands explored throughout the day will lead to collaborative decision-making regarding the scope, themes and format of a major conference on 23 and 24 November 2012 at The Courtauld.
Seminar activities will be followed by an open session featuring presentations from three London curators. All are welcome at this event, and details can be found here.
