The Appeal of Sculpture in Renaissance Italy : Collecting, Patronage, Style, and the Role of Touch.

Appel à communication expirant le 15 mai 2011.

mardi 3 mai 2011, par Guillaume Berthon

Washington, March 22-24, 2012
Deadline : May 15, 2011

Organizer : Joaneath Spicer, Walters Art Museum

New perspectives on the perception of sculpture, especially the small
bronze, have been raised in current and recent research projects,
publications and exhibitions. This session seeks to draw these together
to foster broader insights, including from the fields of literature,
psychology, and neuroscience. The representation of the collector and
collections, issues inherent to the paragone debates, the differences
in sculpture meant to be touched or held and sculpture that was simply
to be viewed, how sculpture generates “pleasure” : these are all
potential subjects.
This proposal is prompted by a fruitful ongoing collaboration at the
Walters Art Museum melding the perspectives of an art historian and a
neuroscientist in assessing the role of tactility in the appeal of the
small bronze in Renaissance Italy. A small exhibition on this subject
will be on view at the Walters in Baltimore at the time of the
conference, while an exhibition on the sculptor Antico will be at the
National Gallery in Washington. The possibility of group visits to both
will be offered. The session is sponsored by the Italian Art Society.

Please email your proposal (maximum 150 words) with your name,
affiliation and cv (maximum 2 pages) by 15 May 2011 to Joaneath Spicer.
