Held in connection with the release of the third volume of the Terra Foundation Essays, Circulation, edited by François Brunet (Université Paris Diderot-Paris 7), these study days will enlarge upon the main argument of the book: that American art works and pictures have existed and produced meaning by moving. On this occasion, French and US specialists working in the areas of decorative arts, photography, magazines, sculpture, popular culture, and technology will gather to discuss how the circulation of images has been, from the eighteenth century to the present, a shaping and distinctive factor in the history of American Art. In this context, circulation will be understood in the broadest sense: spatial, temporal, commercial, international, and intermedial. In particular, speakers will consider how writing this history of continuous mobility becomes ever more relevant in the digital era.
Organized in partnership with Université Paris Diderot-Paris 7 and Université Paris Nanterre.
This event is free and open to the public. It will be held in French and English.
