Late Romanesque Sculpture in European Cathedrals: Stages, Narratives and Materiality (18-20 Nov 2015, Tarragona)

Girona 3The TEMPLA research group has convened a conference to discuss the usefulness of traditional stylistic terminology, and consider the questions posed by the categorisation of medieval European artistic production, specifically as this affects our understanding of work from the second half of the 12th century. Nowadays it is still difficult to grasp with any subtlety how late Romanesque sculpture was used across Latin Europe, and how it interacted with other media and other styles. Our purpose is to analyse the role of sculpture as both programme and scenery – foreground and background – specifically with regard to the solutions adopted in cathedrals.

Conference: Faltbilder/Foldable Pictures (Zürich, 21-22 November 2014)

Conference:
Faltbilder. Medienspezifika klappbarer Bildträger.
Foldable Pictures. Implications of Mediality.
University of Zürich, 21-22 November 2014

Organisation
David Ganz (Universität Zürich)
Marius Rimmele (NCCR Mediality, Universität Zürich)

Book pages, diptychs, and triptychs were popular formats for the presentation of images in the medieval and early modern periods. In addition to their ubiquity, these objects also share one essential material feature: the supports that carry the images are movable. The most obvious consequence of the mobile presentation is the consecutive progression of different views.
met
Only in recent years did scholars begin to consider the processes of transformation that the opening and closing of pictured surfaces generate, for example the strategies of layering or folding images and the production of tacit knowledge caused by such formats. Using foldable pictures leads to a metaphorical coding of entire object classes, but also to a semantization of specific object areas (the dichotomy of inside and outside as, for example, “secular” versus “sacred”, or “accessible” versus “secret”). Furthermore, also structural features such as borders or thresholds, hinges, and cleavages play a decisive role in these processes. Thanks to the viewer’s memory, images “hidden” beneath other images begin to “gleam through” and become virtually present nonetheless. Movability also creates multiple lines of vision or additional moments of contact between represented persons.

It appears that artists have paid much more attention to these issues as has been hitherto recognized. It may also be noted that this is not a phenomenon restricted to artistic problems. In religious images, such effects were harnessed to draw attention to other functions, such as
didactic or mnemonic purposes.

This conference will explore the range of recently observed phenomena, and discuss their implications for the concept of the image in medieval and early modern period.

Conference: In centro et oculis urbis nostrae. La chiesa e il monastero di San Zaccaria (Venice, 27-29 November 2014)

Conference:
In centro et oculis urbis nostrae. La chiesa e il monastero di San  Zaccaria
Venice, 27 – 29 November 2014

Curated by  Bernard Aikema, Massimo Mancini, Paola Modesti

Venice_San_ZaccariaThe Studium Generale Marcianum is proud to present the symposium dedicated to the Church and Monastery of San Zaccaria in Venice. This is the fourth of a series of conferences related to the project “Chiese di Venezia. Nuove prospettive di ricerca” (The Churches of Venice. New Research Perspectives) aimed at studying some selected Venetian churches. During these conferences, groups of scholars participate to discussions and activities related to the churches and their history, exchanging comparative researches on different fields. The results of each symposium enhance new direction of research and are yearly published in a new series of volumes edited by Marcianum Press. The Benedictine Monastery of San Zaccaria, founded by the Doge of Venice before the church of St. Mark and close to the political and religious centre of the city, was one of the wealthiest Venetian ecclesiastical institutions. The art and architecture of the two fifteenth century paired churches, many aspects of the history of the monastery and the life and artistic patronage of the nuns have been the subject of several researches in the past. The goal of this conference is to integrate and update those contents with new contributions, to address some specific questions which have not been sufficiently investigated yet and to critically analise the events, issues and critical works from a comparative point of view. The focus of this study will be the life of the monastery during the period between the ninth and the sixteenth century: its wide and central urban “territory”; the construction phases of the ancient church; the architecture of the “new” church and monastery; the magnificent wooden choir of the nuns; the rituals, traditions and transformations of the two churches occurred between the fifteenth and seventeenth century and the seventeenth and eighteenth century decoration of the church with some paintings representing  the splendor of the monastery.

The last session of the conference will be held in the church of San Zaccaria and in the former monastery (now headquarter of the Comando Provinciale dei Carabinieri) which will be open to the public for this special occasion.

Thanks to the presence and contribute of a group of respondent-guests, some key issues and problems regarding the art and architecture will be taken up and discussed in situ. The officer of the Sovrintendenza, together with some restorers, will illustrate the conservation interventions carried out recently or still going on. For a wider audience than that of the “insiders” a side event will be organized: the concert of the Reverendissime Gentildonne, during which music and readings will alternate in the church of San Moise.

The church and the monastery of San Zaccaria will be open to the public thanks to the contribution of the students of the degree course in Cultural Heritage of the Istituto Superiore di Scienze Religiose San Lorenzo Giustiniani, who will do some guided tours for the participants.
