The Edith O'Donnell Institute of Art History will be hosting a one-day symposium on Saturday, April 23, 2016, at the University of Texas at Dallas. All are welcome. Location, directions, and a detailed schedule of events are provided in the link below. Due to limited space, please RSVP by April 4th.
This symposium brings together art historians whose areas of specializations range from late antiquity to the twentieth century. Each will contribute his or her expertise and insights on the topic of diptychs, triptychs and polyptychs. The goal of this symposium is not to chart a linear history for these objects; rather, speakers and moderators will offer discussion of the kinds of questions and problems raised by the study of these objects, as well as propose new directions and methodologies scholars might apply in the future.
