‘art in the periphery’ workshop – 5 December 2014

ricardo lucas brancoThe ‘art in the periphery’ research cluster will continue its regular meetings next week, with Ricardo Lucas Branco (Instituto de História da Arte). His talk entitled “Tridentine Classicism” and “Estilo Chão”: Portuguese Ecclesiastic Architecture between Center and Periphery (which will be delivered in Portuguese), will discuss the role of the Company of Jesus in the emergence of a local architectural model, peripheral in its relationship to Italy, but of great impact when considered in the context of colonial expansion.

The workshop will take place on December 5, at 18h00, at the Faculdade das Ciências Sociais e Humanas, Universidade Nova de Lisboa (sala T16, piso 3, Torre B). The seminar is open to the public.

The abstract in Portuguese can be consulted below:

“A génese dos primeiros modelos de templos surgidos logo antes ou na sequência imediata das resoluções do Concílio de Trento (1545-1563), de concepção já adequada a uma liturgia e culto reformados, constituem uma das questões mais importantes da história da arquitectura do período moderno. A situação portuguesa não é excepção e constitui, aliás, um caso de estudo de particular interesse e relevância mesmo a nível europeu, pelo impacto produzido no seu espaço continental e ultramarino. Em discussão estará o papel da Companhia de Jesus no surgimento precoce de um modelo de raiz nacional, periférico em relação à realidade artística itálica, e a importação de formas e linguagens deste contexto e o seu reflexo na formação de um italianismo português igualmente de grande fortuna na nossa arquitectura religiosa”.

The ‘art in the periphery’ research cluster is pleased to announce the second edition of its workshop, with the participation of Nóra Veszprémi (formerly of the Hungarian National Gallery, and currently a lecturer in art history at the Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest). Her talk, entitled “Characteristic but Universal: Narratives of Hungarian art”, will expand on methodological and theoretical problems regarding the integration of Hungarian art and art historiography in canons of Western European art, problems of the relationship between centers and peripheries, and the identities of artistic regions. Her lecture will be given on September 26, at 18h00, at the Faculdade das Ciências Sociais e Humanas, Universidade Nova de Lisboa (I&D building, room 1.05, floor 1).

‘art in the periphery’ workshop – 30 July 2014

The ‘art in the periphery‘ research cluster, that integrates the Museum Studies research group (thematic line “Exhibition: Theories and Practices”) will launch its 2014-2015 workshop on Wednesday, July 30, at 18.00 at the I&D building (room 1.05, floor 1). Open to the public, as well as the researchers of the IHA and other units of the Faculty of Social and Human Sciences, the workshop, coordinated and organized by Foteini Vlachou, is an opportunity for the cluster’s members to convene regularly and share their research. The objective is to stimulate debate surrounding the greater themes embraced by the cluster (centers and peripheries, global history of art, the function of the canon etc.) and encourage the application of relevant theories and methodologies to the diverse chronological and geographical areas where the ‘art in the periphery’ members work.

The workshop will be inaugurated with the participation of Arthur Valle, who teaches art history at the Universidade Federal Rural do Rio de Janeiro and has been a postdoctoral fellow at the IHA for the past year. He is going to discuss the Portuguese periodical A Ilustração, published in Paris by Mariano Pina, focusing on the notions of center and canon implicit in the texts and images of the publication, as well as on the part it played in the consolidation of networks of sociability among Portuguese and Brazilian artists at the end of the nineteenth century. Arthur Valle will also present a brief overview of the ways Brazilian historiography of art has responded so far to the concepts of centers and peripheries, the possibility of a global history of art etc.

The workshop format will follow the model: lecture-debate. From September onwards, the workshop will take place the last Friday of each month, and the complete program of the sessions held will be announced later this year.
