Lorentz Dietrichson Lecture 2017: Michael Ann Holly
IFIKK and Kunsthistorisk Forening (The Art History Association) invites you to the Lorentz Dietrichson Lecture 2017.
Michael Ann Holly will give the talk «The Back of the Painted Beyond». The talk will mostly be a phenomenological talk addressing the question «where do vanishing points go when they vanish?» with reference to early modern works of art.
The lecture is open to everyone.
Michael Ann Holly is the Starr director emeritus of the Research and Academic Program at the Clark Art Institute, having served as director from 1999 to 2013. She was previously a founder of the Visual and Cultural Studies Program and chair of the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Rochester.
Holly is the author or co-editor of several books on subjects concerning the historiography and theory of art history. They include: Past Looking: Historical Imagination and the Rhetoric of the Image (1996) and Panofsky and the Foundations of Art History (1984). Most recently, she published The Melancholy Art (2013), which examines the melancholic tendencies running through the history of art as a discipline.
