Appel à contribution : « The new lives of Greek divinities in Western Europe: Textual and visual figurations from the 14th to the 16th century », Lille/Paris, Université de Lille/Bibliothèque de l’Arsenal, 23-29 mai 2024, date limite le 15 janvier 2024

In his famous work, La survivance des dieux antiques, published in 1939, Jean Seznec demonstrated that knowledge of the Greek gods did not disappear during the Middle Ages, and thus challenged the opposition often drawn between the Middle Ages and the Renaissance: “Pagan antiquity, far from being ‘reborn’ in 15th-century Italy, survived in medieval culture and art; the gods themselves were not resurrected, for they had never disappeared from the memory and imagination of men...

Colloque : « S’affranchir des frontières. Temps, espaces, acteurs, 1400-1630 », Fribourg, Université de Fribourg, 12-14 juin 2023

Le franchissement et l’affranchissement des frontières peuvent en effet être considérés, entre le XVe et le XVIIe siècles, comme des pratiques essentielles de la constitution de l’identité, aussi bien au niveau de l’individu dans sa singularité personnelle que de l’époque dans sa nature globale de phénomène culturel. Sur le plan temporel, d’une part, les frontières constitutives des époques deviennent perméables, en particulier lorsqu’il s’agit d’actualiser ou de transformer des savoirs ou des modèles esthétiques plus anciens. Sur...

Appel à contribution : « Early European Puppetry », New Haven, Yale University, 12-15 octobre 2023, date limite le 1er mai 2023

From moving statues to artificial animals to marionette performances, puppetry seems to have appeared in every sector of medieval and early modern European society. Jointed religious figures illustrated the liturgy, while dragon effigies processed through cities on feast days, and popular and courtly audiences enjoyed puppet shows of legendary and historical events. Despite the ubiquity of medieval and early modern puppets in Europe, scholarly consideration of these performing objects is often limited to case studies....

Séminaire : « Immortal Egypt. The Afterlife of Egypt in Early Modern Visual Art », Londres, Warburg Institute, 2-3 mars 2023 / Rome, Bibliotheca Hertziana, 13-14 avril 2023 / Paris, INHA, 1er-2 juin 2023

In ancient Egypt, Ba was the name given to an immaterial manifestation of a mummified human which flew away after death but always returned, bringing light and nourishment. Like the Ba, the ghost of ancient Egypt haunts the collective memory in an eternal return and by reflecting itself in the changing mirror of history. Immortal Egypt is a series of international workshops devoted to the way artists looked at the land of the pharaohs –...

Conférence en ligne : Alejandro Vergara, De la pintura al mito: un camino de ida y vuelta, Madrid, Museo del Prado, le 10 mars 2021 à 18h30

En la mitología grecorromana el amor, el deseo y la belleza están íntimamente relacionados entre sí y dominan las vidas de los humanos. Los mitos que se refieren a estos asuntos fueron muy estimados por los artistas del Renacimiento y el Barroco, que buscaron representarlos con sentimiento intenso. Los coleccionistas de élite que encargaron pinturas sobre estos temas disfrutaban de su contenido erótico y se recreaban en su propia cultura clásica. Tiziano fue uno de...

Appel à contribution : « Des pieds et des mains. Représentations culturelles, politiques et sociales en Europe (1450-1650) », Vichy, 24-25 septembre 2021, date limite le 1er septembre 2020

Colloque organisé par Marie-Joëlle Louison-Lassablière (Université Jean Monnet, Saint-Étienne) et Samuel Cuisinier-Delorme (Université Clermont Auvergne) avec le soutien de l’IHRIM (UMR 5317). Pieds et mains permettent la relation à autrui, au monde et à Dieu. Comment la Renaissance appréhende-t-elle cette relation ? Les découvertes géographiques, médicales et techniques, l’avènement de nouveaux schémas de pensée et de nouvelles croyances, ainsi que les bouleversements sociaux qui en résultent ont-ils modifié la perception que l’homme se fait de ses pieds...

Parution : Chiara Franceschini (dir.), « Sacred Images and Normativity: Contested Forms in Early Modern Art », Turnhout, Brepols, 2020

Early modern objects, images and artworks were often nodes of discussion and contestation. If images were sometimes contested by external and often competing agencies (religious and secular authorities, image theoreticians, various Inquisitions, etc.), artists and objects were just as likely to impose their own rules and standards through the continuation and/or contestation of established visual traditions, styles, iconographies, materialities, reproductions, and reframings. While issues such as censorship and iconoclasm have already received much attention from...
