Exposition : « El ingenio al servicio del poder Los códices de Leonardo da Vinci en la corte de los Austrias », Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando, Madrid, 16 février-16 mai 2021

La exposición propone un viaje apasionante a la tecnología y los ingenios en una época en la que Madrid, sede de la corte de los Austrias, era además el centro del conocimiento científico y técnico. Los mejores artistas y técnicos venían para realizar ambiciosos proyectos de arquitectura hidráulica o ingeniería civil. También llegaron los más importantes tratados de esas materias y, entre ellos, gran parte de la obra manuscrita de Leonardo da Vinci. Source

Appel à contribution : « Flemish Art: Past and Present », Arts, date limite le 24 avril 2021

We invite abstracts for a Special Issue of Arts, titled “Flemish Art: Past and Present.” The title of this issue is intentionally broad. Flemish art is traditionally understood to mean a style of art, particularly painting, as it developed in Flanders and northern France during the fifteenth century. The label of “Flemish” as it pertains to a geographical or political region has changed considerably since Belgium formed as a nation state in 1931. Consequently, “Flemish”...

Appel à contribution : « Les formes de l’empathie. Arts et langages », Notos. Espaces de la création. Arts, écritures, utopies, date limite le 12 avril 2021

Quand nous contemplons le visage d’une personne, un paysage d’émotions s’offre à nous : nous entrons spontanément en résonance avec autrui. L’empathie est cette résonance qui se situe sur le plan émotionnel, mais aussi cognitif : à la fois psychique et biologique, ce phénomène qui nous relie les uns aux autres a joué un rôle majeur dans l’histoire de l’évolution. Dans son ouvrage L’âge de l’empathie, Frans de Waal souligne combien la survie de nombreuses espèces d’animaux...

Parution : Christopher White, « Anthony Van Dyck and the Art of Portraiture », New Haven, Yale University Press, 2021

In this sumptuously illustrated volume, eminent art historian Sir Christopher White places the portraiture of renowned Flemish painter Anthony Van Dyck (1599–1641) in context among the work of his contemporaries working in and around the courts of seventeenth-century Europe. Van Dyck’s artistic development is charted through his travels, beginning in his native Antwerp, then to England, Italy, Brussels, the Hague, and back again. Combining historical insights with a discerning appreciation of the work, White brings...

Parution : Jérémie Koering, « Les iconophages. Une histoire de l’ingestion des images », Arles, Actes Sud, 2021

Manger ou boire des images… quelle drôle d’idée ! Et pourtant, depuis l’Antiquité, on n’a cessé de se repaître de fresques, d’icônes, de sculptures, de gravures, d’hosties estampées, de gaufres héraldiques, de représentations en massepain ou de mets sculptés… Spécifiquement produits pour être consommés ou détournés de leur destination première pour être ingérés, ces artéfacts figuratifs ont non seulement pu être regardés, mais encore incorporés sous forme solide ou liquide. Mais comment expliquer pareille attitude...

Conférence : Diane Bodart, « In the Mirror of Armor », en ligne, 7 avril 2021

In the early fifteenth century, while new treatments of steel surfaces elaborated in Northern Italy made armor as shiny and reflective as a mirror, the refinement of glazes reached by oil painting in the Low-Countries allowed the representation of such optical effects. At the encounter between these two new technologies, the pictorial detail of the reflection became the site for experimentation with its transformative potentialities. Reflections on armor, like those on mirrors, may operate a...

Appel à contribution : « What does Animation mean in the Middle Ages? Theoretical and Historical Approaches », Bialystok, The A. Zelwerowicz National Academy of Dramatic Art, 19-21 septembre 2021, date limite le 1er avril 2021

This conference is concerned with the agency and life of material objects and evolves around the investigation of two interlaced objectives. First, the project will shed light on understudied aspects of medieval visual culture, focusing in particular on the agency of images and material objects. Second, it will provide new cutting-edge theoretical reflections and methodologies concerning the study of material agency and “living images” today. We argue that the cultural use of and interaction with...
