Elizabeth Duntemann to take residency at the Center for the Art and Architecture of Port Cities, Naples, Italy

Author: Jane DeRose Evans

Elizabeth (PhD candidate, Art History) writes, "I am pleased to share that I have accepted a 9-month Research Residency at the Center for the Art and Architectural History of Port Cities/Centro per la Storia dell’Arte e dell’Architettura delle Città Portuali, in Naples, Italy. I will be part of an inaugural group of Ph.D. candidates invited to live and work on the grounds of the Museo e Real Bosco Capodimonte, at La Capraia. This residency will facilitate unprecedented access to resources in the city, foster professional connections with other graduates and scholars, and create a platform to share research across academic, museum, and public spheres. The residency project I have proposed to complete will contribute a vital strand to my dissertation research, which re-centers port cities, including Naples, as hubs of cultural production, to examine how art and architecture negotiated constructs of chronic infection and healing during the sixteenth century.   Read More

Joseph Kopta (PhD candidate, Art History) chairs panel at ICMS

Author: Jane DeRose Evans

Art History Ph.D. student Joseph Kopta co-chaired, with Dr. Brad Hostetler of Kenyon College, the double session, “Venice, Materiality, and the Byzantine World” at the 53rd International Congress on Medieval Studies, May 12, 2018, at the Medieval Institute of Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The sessions were sponsored by the Italian Art Society. Kopta’s participation was sponsored, in part, by a Tyler Dean’s Travel Grant for Art History Graduate Students. The Dumbarton Oaks Byzantine Symposium leading to the 2010 publication of San Marco, Byzantium, and the Myths of Venice introduced new perspectives on Byzantine and Venetian visual and material culture that extended Otto Demus’s survey of Saint Mark’s basilica. The authors’ application of more recent approaches—such as the social function of spolia, the act of display, the construction of identity, and cultural hybridity—brought fresh analyses to a complex and richly decorated monument.

The Art of Student Teaching Exhibition

Author: Kylie Doyle

Each year, the Art Education Department presents exhibitions of work done by student teachers and their pupils for display at the Stella Elkins Gallery. This year, four student teachers displayed the products of their time at a variety of schools as community members gathered in fellowship to appreciate the art made by friends and loved ones. Wendy Osterwiel, the supervising professor of this group of students, was one of the Tyler officials present for this installation. “What’s unique about this show is that it’s a rather small group. Each student put a lot of time into this exhibition, and it shows.” The student teachers exhibiting were Brooke Taylor, Madeline Willis, Maria Chambers, and Anna Capriotti. Read More
