Five Upcoming Webinars Not to Miss in February and March

February 17, 2021

With the cold weather moving in forcefully across New England, what better way to spend your time staying warm at home than with some exciting virtual events? Here just are a few upcoming webinars that provide the opportunity to learn about art history, the Adobe Suite, or the Louvre. Finding new ways to come together as a community and work as a team remotely has been such a necessary learning curve, but Zoom has it’s fun aspects as well. Now we have the opportunity to visit an artist’s studio from across the country, hear how David Zwirner handles the pandemic, or even see collections from overseas in a way we had not normalized before the days of COVID-19.

”Historically, science and the humanities were not considered two discrete disciplines: the separation of these two branches of knowledge developed only in the modern era. For art historians in the twenty-first century, this divide is only widening as some scholars embrace technological advances while others remain unconvinced that computational techniques and tools can bring meaningful changes to the field.”

4. Race, Gender, and Intermedia Art Practice in Paris c. 1900 by Birkbeck Centre for Nineteenth-Century Studies

February 26th, 2021
12pm - 2pm EST

“What were the opportunities and limitations in late nineteenth-century Paris for artists (broadly defined) who were not white and male? This pair of events brings together research presentations and roundtable discussion in response to passages from art historian Emily C. Burns’s book-in-progress, Performing Innocence: Cultural Belatedness and U.S. Art in Fin-de-Siècle Paris. Burns analyzes how the encounters in the French capital reshaped American culture, fueled by the idea that the US had no culture, no history, and no tradition. The sections were pre-circulated to participants and will be briefly summarized at the start of the Feb 26 event.”
