Amelia Jones is the Robert A. Day Professor at the Roski School of Art and Design at University of Southern California. During her visit to Sydney, she will be presenting a lunchtime seminar for students on curating queer performance and archives.
The Power Institute is pleased to present a lecture by Ewa Lajer-Burcharth, Professor of Fine Arts in the Department of History of Art and Architecture at Harvard University. The lecture will focus on Jean-Honoré Fragonard’s extraordinary series of views from the Villa d’Este in Tivoli, described as “one of the most beautiful red chalk drawings ever made.”
What can be gained from considering a painting not only as an image but also a material object? Students and interested attendees are invited to join Professor Lajer-Burcharth to discuss the central themes of her long awaited book, The Painter’s Touch. This lunchtime seminar will focus on the question of the relation between materiality and meaning in the context of the Enlightenment.
