2012 History of Art Graduate Student Symposium: From Bodies to Billboards: Alternative Sites of Display

This year’s symposium, From Bodies to Billboards: Alternative Sites of Display, seeks to build upon recent developments in curatorial practices and museum theory by focusing attention on alternative sites and modes of display. One of the goals of this symposium is to consider critically how meaning is generated from specific sites, and how context changes our understanding of the work of art. “Alternative” is viewed as an open category that might embrace unusual or overlooked spaces and display practices, or encourage new, critical approaches to traditional exhibition arenas (galleries, museums, etc.). Another goal is to spur interdisciplinary dialogue, intellectual debate, and to broaden the community of art historians and other scholars working with visual material and culture beyond the walls of the University of Michigan.

This event is sponsored by the University of Michigan Department of the History of Art, UMMA, and the Institute for the Humanities. Speaker details are posted on the History of Art website www.lsa.umich.edu/histart.
