Symposium: “American Art and the Mass Media”

Inspired by an exhibition on Andy Warhol’s artistic preoccupation with the visual culture of journalism, this international symposium considered the dynamic interplay of the fine arts with the technologies and structures of mass media across the long narrative of American art history. Speakers explore moments of intersection across disciplines from the sixteenth century up to the present and examine correspondences and tensions that emerge when disciplinary boundaries are fractured. The event is supported by the Terra Foundation for American Art, the Courtauld Institute of Art, and the Institut National d’Histoire de l’Art in partnership with the Ecole Normale Supérieure, the Université Paris-Ouest Nanterre la Défense, and the Université François Rabelais de Tours.
