Histoires de prêts, mémoire et enjeux des prêts dans les musées

Colloque international, 28-29 septembre 2017

Paris, Ecole du Louvre

 

Depuis la fin du XIXe siècle, la diffusion des expositions temporaires détermine l’émergence d’un système international des musées fondé sur la circulation d’œuvres et d’objets. Pour un musée, envoyer les œuvres de ses collections dans des expositions devient crucial afin de s’assurer, à son tour, les prêts qui lui permettront d’organiser ses propres expositions. Prêter des œuvres à de grands établissements, notamment étrangers, signifie également, pour un conservateur, garantir à ses collections une visibilité accrue. Où expose-t-on, qu’expose-t-on et avec quelle fréquence, quelles pièces arrive-t-on à obtenir et de quels partenaires : tels deviennent désormais les critères fondamentaux . . . → En lire plus

Appel à communication : « Ces matières sans rivales », la céramique architecturale et la manufacture de Sèvres. (Paris, INHA, 13 octobre 2017)

Ces « matières sans rivales »,

la céramique architecturale et la manufacture de Sèvres

Journée d’études organisée par la Cité de la céramique et le LABEX CAP (Création, Arts, Patrimoine), Paris, INHA, 13 octobre 2017

Si la céramique architecturale, comprise comme matériau ou élément de décors, occupe une grande place dans le paysage urbain européen, elle reste encore mal connue et la Manufacture de Sèvres apparaît de surcroît comme la grande absente des publications sur ce sujet.

Lieu d’exception tant par sa production que par ses expérimentations techniques, Sèvres, tantôt pionnière, tantôt suiveuse, apparaît . . . → En lire plus

Appel à communication : « Memory and the Making of Knowledge in the Early Modern World » (Göttingen, 18-22 septembre 2017)

Memory is now established as a dynamic and vital field of study in the humanities and social sciences. It is no longer disputed that how, why, and what individuals, communities, and societies remember is essential to under-standing their pasts and presents. A good deal of this work has understandably concentrated on contemporary history: the emergence of social history in the middle decades of the twentieth century shifted the spotlight to focus on ordinary people, and developments in medicine, psychology, and sociology produced a more sophisticated understanding of the functioning of individual and social memory. This has led to new techniques of oral history opening up . . . → En lire plus

Appel à communication : « Historians of Netherlandish Art Conference » (Gand, 24-26 mai 2018)

Historians of Netherlandish Art Conference (Ghent, 24-26 May 2018) Ghent, HNA Conference Deadline: May 15, 2017 [1] Bruegel’s Politics Among the most unforgettable lines from Karel van Mander’s biography of Pieter Bruegel the Elder are those that concern the artist’s final hours. Bruegel, on his deathbed, asked his wife to burn some of his works “either because he was sorry or because he was afraid that on their account, she would get into trouble or might have to answer for them.” The implication that Bruegel produced a body of images of a polemic if not overtly political nature has long haunted scholarship on the artist.

Appel à communication : VII Colloque du Musée D. João VI / IV Colloque International – Collections d’Art au Brésil et au Portugal

How is art displayed within collections of different types: scientific, artistic, didactic, museological, private and public? Once we give access to it through this strategy of display, how is it understood? What kind of experience and/or knowledge does it promote? And how does that influence affect the writing of Art Histories? The physical spaces filled by these collections gather different experiences that need to be contemplated [taken into account] in the writing processes of Art Histories. Rather than evaluating works of art through the isolated images of each piece, their photographic representations and the data available in inventories, we propose that trying to access them in physical locations opens up new perspectives. Objects gain concreteness, materiality, positions, means of interaction with other pieces next to them as well as with people who relate to them under these circumstances, which enables us to take into consideration embodied acting observers. In certain locations, empty spaces acquire densities, as intervals between objects working as amalgamations of sense, contributing to give cohesion to the collections. We call for proposals that, within this mental framework, reflect about the spatiality of art collections, considering works of art as they occupy real physical spaces, instigating discussions about art and its location and the means of reception and understanding according to their means of display. . . . → En lire plus

Appel à communication : Batavia in Bavaria. Dutch and Flemish art and artists in southern Germany

Batavia in Bavaria. Dutch and Flemish art and artists in southern Germany

Call for Papers & Workshops

When talking about transnational inspirations for arts and culture in southern Germany, Italy is often named as the first reference. For many centuries, however, there have been various connections with the Netherlands and Flanders, which equally effected the arts and sciences south of the line of the Main river.

In the Middle Ages, dynastic contacts especially furthered the exchange. Between 1353 and 1429 the duchy of Straubing-Holland created a direct political link between the house of Wittelsbach and the Netherlands, which benefitted the mobility of artists and artisans between the two remote territories. With the so-called double marriage of Cambrai (1385) the Bavarian duke Albrecht I. forged . . . → En lire plus
