ANN: Center for the Art and Architectural History of Port Cities, Naples Call for Applications: 2019-2020 Research Residencies

Opened in Fall 2018, the Center for the Art and Architectural History of Port Cities / Centro per la Storia dell’Arte e dell’Architettura delle Città Portuali is a collaboration between the Museo e Real Bosco di Capodimonte in Naples and the Edith O’Donnell Institute of Art  History at the University of Texas at Dallas, with the participation of the Université Paris-Sorbonne.

Housed within the Capodimonte’s bosco in a rustic eighteenth-century agricultural building called La Capraia (the goat farm), the Center is a laboratory for new research in the cultural histories of port cities and the mobilities of artworks, people, technologies, and ideas. Research and programs at La Capraia are dedicated to exploring global histories of art, architecture, and cultural production, while grounded in direct study of artworks, sites, and materials in Naples as well as southern Italy. Through Research Residencies and regular site-based Research Workshops and Symposia, the Center at La Capraia supports scholarly access to Naples, fosters new research on Naples and on other port cities, and creates a network of students and scholars working on related projects.

The Advisory Committee of the Center for the Art and Architectural History of Port Cities invites applications for Research Residencies for PhD students in the earlier stages of their dissertations. Projects, which may be interdisciplinary, may focus on art and architectural history, music history, archeology, or related fields, from antiquity to the present. All projects must address the cultural histories of Naples as a center of exchange, encounter, and transformation, while making meaningful use of research materials in Naples and southern Italy including artworks, sites, archives, and libraries.

CFP: The Artistic Patronage in Central Europe (Warsaw, 19-21 Sep 19)

Deadline: Feb 15, 2019

Call for Papers
Artistic Patronage in Central Europe: From Private Foundations to State Art

—For English version please scroll down—

27. Tagung des Arbeitskreises deutscher und polnischer Kunsthistoriker und Denkmalpfleger, veranstaltet vom Institut für Kunstgeschichte der Universität Warschau und dem Museum der Stadt Warschau (Muzeum Warszawy)

Kunstpatronage in Mitteleuropa zwischen Privatstiftung und Staatskunst

Die Geschichte der Kunst ist zum großen Teil eine Geschichte der Auftragserteilung. Privates Mäzenatentum bildete von je her eine unabdingbare Grundlage der Entwicklung von Architektur und Bildender Kunst. Daneben stehen von der Antike bis in die Gegenwart die Aufträge staatlicher und religiöser Institutionen, die immer auch auf die Etablierung einer “offiziellen Kunst” zielten. Mit dem Kunstmarkt und dem Auktions- und Galeriewesen etablierten sich seit dem 19. Jahrhundert neue Faktoren der Produktion und Distribution von Kunst.

CFP: Encounters, Entanglements, and Exchanges (New Haven, 6 Apr 19)

Yale University, April 06, 2019
Deadline: Feb 1, 2019

The Fifteenth Annual Yale University American Art Graduate Symposium
Encounters, Entanglements, and Exchanges

Points of encounter can occur across time and space. In the seventeenth century, Puebla blue-and-white pottery responded to East Asian porcelain while ceramic manufacturers in China adapted designs that catered to pan-American tastes. More recently, Carrie Mae Weems’s “The Hampton Project” reexamined a nineteenth-century vocational school that served as a cultural crossroads for formerly enslaved African Americans, American Indians, and white Americans to raise pressing questions of race, imperialism, and nationalism. These points of convergence between individuals, groups, places, and objects often instigate shifts in creative production with lasting and global resonances. The interaction of disparate cultures offers a rich nexus for artistic creation. Yet such encounters are also inseparable from the shifting dynamics of power that operate along gendered, racial, economic, and political lines. What can exchanges and entanglements reveal about the nature of encounter? How do encounters shape exchanges? In what ways do exchanges propagate new encounters?

The Fifteenth Annual Yale University American Art Graduate Symposium invites papers that interrogate the dialectical relationship between encounter and exchange and explore the legacies of cultural intersection. We invite submissions that address art across North, Central, and South America and the Caribbean, that engage a range of critical perspectives, and that speak to a variety of time periods and artistic practices.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

– Activism, coalition building, and the arts
– Micro-histories that address a specific instance of encounter
– Collaborations that problematize narratives of “influence” across social, cultural, or political hierarchies
– Impact of religious proselytization and conversion in the arts
– Gift exchange, diplomacy, and trade
– Appropriation, fetishism, and mimicry
– Contact zones, intersectionality, and peripheries
– Imbalanced power dynamics within systems of colonialism, racism, homophobia, or sexism
– Immigration, migrants, and refugees
– Authorship and ownership
– Tourism and travel narratives
– Global encounters with the notion of “Americanness”
– Networks created via technology, globalization, and media

Interested participants are invited to submit an abstract of no more than 350 words along with a CV to americanist.symposium@gmail.com by February 1, 2019. Accepted participants will be notified in mid-February. Accommodations will be provided for all participants in New Haven, Connecticut.
