Call for papers: student for View 2015 (London, 28 february)

1109VIEW 2015

The Institut français du Royaume-Uni in London is proud to announce the second edition of ‘VIEW’, its annual art history festival, which sets out to pioneer an inclusive, accessible and ambitious approach of the study of art history.
Building on the success of its first edition in February 2014, VIEW will explore the multiple facets of art history through debates, conversations, talks, exclusive museum tours and an art book fair, as well as a special programme of student presentations.
To showcase the work of some of the best young researchers in art history in France and in the UK, six students, selected by a jury through a special call for papers, will be invited to present a short talk (c. 15 minutes each) at the Institut français in London on Saturday 28 February 2015 as part of the festival’s programme.



Students are invited to draw out, explore and analyse echos between two works of art: one which must be by a French artist, the other by a British artist.
The two works chosen can be from any period and in any medium; they do not have to both be from the same period or in the same medium, nor does there need to be a historical or proven factual connection between them.
The artworks paired can be as similar or dissimilar as you wish – original, unexpected and irreverent pairings that throw new light on the works are encouraged.
