Yale Center for British Art Graduate Student Summer Seminar June 6–11, 2011
Making Art, Picturing Practice: The Artist’s Studio in Britain ca. 1700–1900
In June 2011 the Yale Center for British Art (YCBA) will offer a weeklong graduate seminar, generously supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, open to doctoral candidates working on topics relating to the artist’s studio and artistic practice in the eighteenth, nineteenth, and early twentieth centuries. It will focus on the studio as understood in its broadest sense, both as site and idea, and will closely examine representations of studios alongside other evidence of their function and appearance. Incorporating a wide range of materials and objects held by the Center, as well as in other collections at Yale and nearby museums, the purpose of the seminar is to interrogate representations and interpretations of the studio through primary visual documents, developing methods for the analysis and critique of the visual and material culture that can inform our understanding of art practices. The instructors for the seminar are Martina Droth, Head of Research and Curator of Sculpture at the YCBA, and Mark Hallett, Professor of Art History and Head of Department, the University of York, UK.
Further details and application information are available on the YCBA website at http://ycba.yale.edu/education/edu_fellowships.html, in the Graduate Student Opportunities section. Any queries may be addressed to Marinella Vinci, Senior Administrative Assistant, Department of Research: firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for receipt of applications is January 21, 2011.
