  1. 3Tamsyn Challenger – On Truth | Backdoor Broadcasting Company

    Egham, Surrey TW20 0EX

    The 2017 David Vilaseca Memorial Lecture

    Tamsyn Challenger – On Truth

    This year’s David Vilaseca Memorial Lecture will be given by Tamsyn Challenger and will try to unpick and dissect ‘truth’ in an age of spin, duplicity and brand management. Weaving together strands from her own life and practice, whilst referencing historical reputation, identity and perception. Tamsyn will attempt to scrutinise the social media age from the facade to reassert a means of making work reliant on an essential sense of truth.

    Tamsyn Challenger is a British artist known for her acclaimed gender-political work ‘400 Women’. The work took five years to create and addresses issues of mortality and the capacity of art to imagine the dead, violence and trauma. Since 2010 her work has been exhibited across the UK and internationally.

  4. 6War and Art: A Visual History of Modern Conflict – Book Launch | Backdoor Broadcasting Company

    Event Date: 8 November 2017

    Room B01

    Clore Management Centre

    Birkbeck, University of London

    Torrington Sq

    London WC1E 7JL

     The Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities presents:

    War and Art: A Visual History of Modern Conflict – Book Launch

    Introduced by the editor, eminent war historian Professor Joanna Bourke, and with short talks from some of the contributing authors, including Monica Bohm-Duchen, Clare Makepeace, Sue Malvern and Sarah Wilson, this event will launch the sumptuously illustrated volume, War and Art: A Visual History of Modern Conflict (Reaktion, 2017)

    The book is a visual, cultural and historical analysis of the ways armed conflict has been represented in a range of artistic forms. Art and artists have played a central role in promoting war, protesting against it, and forging visual images through which war is understood and interpreted by the public. The volume engages with debates about the contribution of art to the practice, memory and commemoration of war.

    As the first major academic collection of essays on art and war in global contexts from the nineteenth century to the present, it is an innovative project which aims to further knowledge in this developing field of scholarship in five key ways:

    By exploring the war-art nexus from a global perspective and in the longue durée – an approach which is rare in the existing literature.

    By putting social historians in dialogue with art historians, anthropologists, archaeologists, and film studies scholars.

    By embracing a broad definition of art – including painting, etchings, photography, film, digital art, comics, graffiti, and material culture – it abandons the common high/low culture divide and attempts to cover all types of artistic representation of combat and behind-the-lines wartime experiences.

    By exploring forms of war representations that are overlooked, specifically art produced by children and prisoners of war as well as representations of sexual violence and animals at war.

    By countering a simplistic gender perspective that tends to equate war with male activities. Female artists and representations of gender (masculinity as well as femininity) at war are prominent in all chapters.

  10. 3Xavier Bray – To change or not to change the Wallace Collection? | Backdoor Broadcasting Company

    Event Date: 8 November 2017

    Picture Gallery

    Royal Holloway University of London

    Egham, Surrey

    TW20 0EX

    The Humanities and Arts Research Institute at Royal Holloway University of London presents:

     

    Dr Xavier Bray (Director, The Wallace Collection) – To change or not to change the Wallace Collection?

    Dr Bray, Director of the Wallace Collection, will explore the relationship between curating, display, and space, examining the ways in which different practices of curating can shape our understanding of physical as well as cultural environments. The Wallace Collection has unsurpassed displays of French 18th century painting, furniture and porcelain with superb Old Master paintings and a world class armoury.

     

    Dr Bray is a renowned specialist in 17th- and 18th-century art, and Spanish Golden Age art. He started his museum career as an assistant curator at the National Gallery in 1998, before moving to Bilbao to lead the curatorial programme at the Museo de Bellas Artes. In 2002 he returned to the National Gallery as head of Spanish art. In 2011 he took up the post of chief curator at the Dulwich Picture Gallery, before moving to the Wallace Collection in October 2016.  He has curated and co-curated a number of exhibitions, which include: ‘A Brush with Nature: The Gere Collection of Oil Sketches’, ‘An Intimate Vision: Women Impressionists’, ‘El Greco’, ‘Caravaggio’, ‘Velázquez’, ‘The Sacred Made Real: Spanish Painting and Sculpture 1600-1700’, ‘Murillo and Justino de Neve: The Art of Friendship’ and ‘Goya: The Portraits’
