Printed Stone: Sculpture and Its Images
Institute of Advanced Studies, University College London, 12 June 2017

Organized by by Brigid von Preussen and Cora Gilroy-Ware

This interdisciplinary workshop will explore the relationship between sculpture and its printed images, whether produced for reasons of commerce or conservation, public edification or private gain. Our participants will interrogate the process of translation and mediation between two and three dimensions, asking how the materiality of different forms of sculpture has been rendered using various technologies of print-making, from the creation of an intaglio plate to advanced digital mapping techniques and 3D printing. We welcome the attendance and contribution of anyone interested in larger questions of representation, reproduction, materiality, media, technology, and process. Monday, 12 June 2017, 9:30–3:30; Common Ground, South Wing, Wilkins Building, Institute of Advanced Studies, University College London.

Keynote Speaker: Alex Potts (University of Michigan).
Participants include: Malcolm Baker (University of California, Riverside), Allison Stielau (University College London), Richard Taws (University College London), Danielle Thom (Museum of London), Emma Payne (University College London), and Cora Gilroy-Ware (Institute of Advanced Studies).

Organised by Cora Gilroy-Ware (Institute of Advanced Studies) and Brigid von Preussen (Columbia University) with the generous support of the Institute of Advanced Studies, University of London.

Posted in graduate students by Editor on May 5, 2017

From Birkbeck College:

PhD Studentship | Making an Impression: British Women Printmakers in the Eighteenth Century
V&A / Birkbeck College, University of London, starting October 2017

Applications due by 23 May 2017

Angelica Kauffman, Juno, etching, London, 1770 (London: V&A, E.350-1890).

Applications are invited for an AHRC-funded PhD studentship researching the role, status and output of amateur and professional women printmakers in Britain during the long eighteenth century, drawing on the Victoria & Albert Museum’s strong collections of work by women printmakers of this period. The project will reconstruct and investigate the work of a number of women artists who have long been overlooked, thereby making a significant contribution to the history of art, design and the print.

This project will be supervised by Dr Kate Retford, Senior Lecturer in History of Art (Birkbeck College, University of London), who specialises in eighteenth-century British art, particularly gender and portraiture, and Dr Sarah Grant, Curator of Prints at the V&A, whose research interests encompass eighteenth-century prints, women artists, and female patronage.
Deadline: 5pm, Tuesday, 23 May 2017
