Harn Eminent Scholar Chair in Art History Symposium 

Image, Ornament, Matter: A Symposium on their Limits and Intersections in the History of Art

Crossing boundaries of medium and culture, ornament orders both lived space and the planar surface of its support. This symposium examines the fabrics and frameworks of art history by setting ornament in dialogue with both materialism and pictorialism, in exploration of the limits and intersections of representation, abstraction, and materiality.
