This international symposium will focus on exploring transcultural exchanges on North American artists and art objects from the late eighteenth century to the early twentieth century. Papers will address the movement and displacement of North American artists and the circulation of physical art objects in North America and Europe, such as paintings and prints, during a broad time frame. Issues of audience and viewership across North America and Europe will also be considered, in cooperation with the varied forms of influence and knowledge from other sources, such as newspapers, letters, and copies of graphic material. Seeking to stimulate an interdisciplinary exchange, this symposium brings together invited scholars and curators working in universities and museums in the United States, Canada, Germany, and the United Kingdom.
Organized by Dr. Allison Stagg, Terra Foundation for American Art Visiting Professor at the John F. Kennedy Institute for North American Studies, Freie Universität Berlin.
