On Monday, April 15th, the Newcomb Art Department presents a lecture by Michael Golec, Associate Professor of Art History, Theory and Criticism at the School of Art Institute of Chicago. Golec's lecture, "Iconic Transmissions: William Morris and the Emergence of Modern Typography” will take place at 6pm in Stone Auditorium, room 210 of the Woldenberg Art Center. This lecture is supported by the Sandra Garrard Memorial Fund. 

Taking its critical cue from New Orleans’s unique liminal position on the Gulf Coast, "Water logics" starts from the shoreline as a threshold, as a point of departure away from land. Beyond the shore, where land meets water, how can water and bodies of water be conceived? To what forms of thought, art, literature, or politics do they give shape? The Gulf Coast’s porosity blurs the very notion of the shore as a cartographic threshold point: the land emerges from water and yet is immersed in water, infiltrated by it.

The Newcomb Art Department presents the 2019 Stern Lecture, "From Land and Water to Text and Object: Porcelain Cultures of the Eighteenth Century," by Nancy Um, professor of art history at Binghamton University. 

 

The Stern Lecture is the Newcomb Art Department’s oldest endowed lecture in art history. First presented in 1999, the Stern lecture was established by Harriet and Bill Rosenthal in honor Harriet’s father Henry Stern, a renowned antiques dealer in the French Quarter.
