Keynote Lecture: The Human Element: Painters and the Profession in Early Colonial Quito
Location: Smathers Library, Room 100*

Susan V. Webster, Jane W. Mahoney Professor of Art and Art History, College of William & Mary
What’s in a name? The historiography of colonial Latin American art is rife with lamentations over the widespread anonymity of early colonial painters. Yet, should naming matter? Can it help us better understand colonial painters, their profession, and, by extension, the images they produced? This talk focuses on painters in early colonial Quito in order to examine issues related to the politics of naming, artistic agency, professional practices, and the European “life-work” model of art historical inquiry. Far from establishing a “canon” along European lines or tempting us to parse hybridity in the images themselves, the archival recovery of named painters and aspects of their lives offers fragmentary but compelling insights into the human element that remains largely invisible in early colonial paintings.

*Please note that this keynote lecture is NOT held at the Harn Museum.

This keynote lecture is held in conjunction with the Harn Eminent Scholar Chair in Art History Symposium, "Beyond Biography: Artistic Practice and Personhood in Colonial Latin America" at the Harn Museum of Art on Friday, October 11.

 

 
 
7:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Mapping a Dialogue: Marginalized Youth and Literacy

(during Museum Nights: Art in Engineering) 



The collision of thought processes around innovative ways of visualizing social inequities often brings artists, educators, and engineers together. Join Michelle Tillander, Associate Professor of Art and Sally Crane, PhD candidate in the College of Education for a conversation ignited by the artwork Prison Searches in regard to the mediated sociocultural landscape, literacy, and the school-to-prison pipeline. Current research will be shared as well as some of the tensions (i.e. personal and political) that arise from dialogues and creative practices of artists and scholars who explore issues of youth inequity.

 
 
9:30 am to 5:00 pm

Harn Eminent Scholar Chair in Art History Symposium: Beyond Biography: Artistic Practice and Personhood in Colonial Latin America
What was the nature of artistic work in colonial Latin America? This symposium gathers leading scholars to think about artistic subjectivity without focusing on names or “life’s work.” We will consider artistic personhood and practice within social structures, in relation to medium, and as determined by gender, age, and race. We strive for a greater understanding of colonial Latin American art itself, as well as of the human agency that brought it into being.

Harn Eminent Scholar Chair in Art History Lecture
Providing for the Afterlife in Ancient Egypt and Early China

Reception to follow. 
Speaker: Anthony Barbieri-Low, Professor of History, University of California, Santa Barbara
Ancient Egypt and China are both recognized for their elaborate visual and material culture associated with the afterlife transition. This talk explores comparable developments in the two mortuary traditions, including the use of miniature figurines and architectural models, expressions of scribal identity, and the association of board-games with paradisiacal realms.
