Colloque : « Pose, Power, Practice: New Perspectives on Life Drawing », Londres, The Courtauld Institute, 20 juin 2024

From the sixteenth century to the present, drawing the human body from life has remained a mainstay of Western institutional art practice. Despite significant shifts in the aesthetics, media, and purpose of art over the last five hundred years, life drawing endures in both the studio and the classroom. Pose, Power, Practice is a one-day symposium that seeks to reassess the state of the field on life drawing and apply new critical frameworks to this...

Journées d’étude : « Peintures murales et ordres mendiants dans les Hautes-Alpes au Moyen Âge », L’Argentière-la-Bessée/Briançon, Foyer culturel, 24-25 juin 2024

Les Hautes-Alpes disposent d’un patrimoine exceptionnel d’une vingtaine de sites de peintures murales religieuses médiévales. Exceptionnel pour deux raisons : son homogénéité chronologique et sa cohérence stylistique d’une part (les peintures ont été réalisées entre 1430 et 1530) ; le contexte socioculturel qui a présidé à leur création, d’autre part (celui d’une reconquête des esprits initiée et favorisée par les archevêques d’Embrun). Pour cette nouvelle édition des Journées, il s’agira précisément de s’interroger sur le rôle joué par les ordres mendiants, et singulièrement les...

Journées d’étude : « Picturing Sainthood: Images and the Making of Saints in Early Modern Global Catholicism », Rome, Bibliotheca Hertziana, 19-21 juin 2024

In the early modern period, throughout the process of negotiation that gave shape to sainthood – whether officially recognized or aspirational – images were of paramount importance. Encompassing a wide range of media, from inexpensive medals and woodcuts to costly altarpieces, images were as crucial at the grassroots level of popular devotion as in the context of elite patronage. The conference Picturing Sainthood: Images and the Making of Saints in Early Modern Global Catholicism investigates...

Appel à contribution : « Nourrices, allaitements et enfants abandonnés dans la culture visuelle de l’époque moderne à nos jours », Dijon, 12 octobre 2024, date limite le 26 juin 2024

Le travail des nourrices a suscité un regain d’intérêt à la suite des études conséquentes consacrées à l’histoire des femmes, de la vie privée et de la famille. Si quelques travaux en histoire de l’art sont consacrés au sujet, cette journée d’études se propose d’explorer plus largement les représentations et la culture visuelle liée à cette figure du travail et de la maternité sur une chronologie étendue, allant de la fin de la période moderne...

Appel à contribution : « Exchanges, Mobility and Collaborations », Besançon, Université de Franche-Comté, 22 novembre 2024, date limite le 30 juin 2024

Silk has been approached in recent historiography as a material whose production and consumption played a crucial role in the formation of the modern world, notably due to the multiplicity and complexity of the exchanges this precious fibre gave rise to. The topic of Franco-Italian relations around silk brings us to explore the multi-faceted issues — socio-economic, political, environmental, artistic and cultural — that underlie these exchanges. These relations between two neighbouring spaces, among the...

Colloque : « Medieval Statues of the Virgin in Performative Contexts », Bamberg, Universität Bamberg, 7 juin 2024

Medieval sculptures of the Virgin do not exist in isolation, but in perfomative contexts. These settings are situations of co-presence and provide multiple opportunities for contacts. They include the multisensory church space as well as the procession or the museum display – in both permanent and temporary exhibitions. Based on concrete case studies, the international workshop will provide a platform for exploring medieval statues of the Madonna in medieval and post-medieval settings, where artefacts and...

Appel à contribution : « Defend Sacred Spaces in the Medieval Mediterranean », Isola di Lipari, Parco Archeologico Luigi Bernabò Brea, 3-5 octobre 2024, date limite le 16 juin 2024

Starting from the end of the 9th century, important events including the disintegration of the Carolingian empire and the advance of populations from northern and eastern Europe and the Arab world triggered a phase of insecurity and political instability. The Mediterranean, a place of meetings and exchanges between culturally and geographically distant populations, was particularly affected by these events. In a climate full of tension, threatened by internal conflicts and the advance of non-Christian populations,...

Appel à contribution : « Empty Boxes? Modeling the Lost and Ephemeral in Premodern Sacred Spaces », Rome, Bibliotheca Hertziana, 29-30 mai 2025, date limite le 15 juin 2024

Premodern sacred space was never in stasis. It was moving, active, and filled with materials, objects, sounds, and people that combined to create an atmosphere of the sacred and, sometimes, the miraculous. As space in flux by definition, the sedimented temporality of devotion – ie. the fundamental composition of the space over time – poses many difficulties for historical modeling, conservation, and restoration practices, against the backdrop of the dramatic changes that spaces, installations, and...
