Conference: “Experience and American Art”

What does it mean to experience a work of art? What does it mean for a work of art to register—even enact—an experience? Would it be possible for an art historian working now, in experiencing a work of art, to sense some aspect of lived experience from another time, another place?

Organized by:

  • Alexander Nemerov, Carl and Marilynn Thoma Provostial Professor in the Arts and Humanities, Department of Art and Art History, Stanford University
  • David Peters Corbett, Professor of American Art and Director, Centre for American Art, The Courtauld Institute of Art
