Particularities of Place: Collecting Early Modern European Art in the Southern United States

Particularities of Place: Collecting Early Modern European Art in the Southern United States 

 

The history of early modern European art collections in the American south offers a complex yet compelling narrative. In the spirit of this year's host city of New Orleans, this session aims to examine the history of early modern holdings across the southern United States and the extent to which cultural and/or sociological connections informed the development of these collections.

 

This session invites submissions from all art historical and museological disciplines on any form of artistic production dating to the early modern era (roughly 1400-1750) provided it bears connection the general geographic footprint of the southern United States. Paper topics can range from individual art work case studies to larger surveys, and those that look to the driving forces behind these collections – such as collector's or curator's personalities; finding a place in history; or a passion for education – are particularly encouraged. 

 

Please send an abstract of 150 words, a one-page CV, and contact information by email attachment to Alexis Culotta (alexis.culotta@gmail.com) and Vanessa Schmid (vschmid@noma.org) no later than 3 June 2017.
