2014 Summer Institute in Technical Art History For Doctoral Students in Art History
New York City, US





Scholarship / Financial aid: housing (single room occupancy)+stipends of $1,300 to help defray travel and living costs

Date: June 9-20, 2014

Deadline: March 24, 2014

Open to: PhD candidates in art history


Announcement follows


The Summer Institute in Technical Art History (SITAH) is an intensive two-week course, geared towards PhD candidates in art history who are looking to delve more deeply into technical studies. Students are immersed into the world of technical art history and conservation of works of art, with faculty ranging from conservators to conservation scientists, curators, art historians, and artists. The course takes full advantage of the wonderful resources of New York City, and many sessions are held in local conservation labs, where attendees have the opportunity to closely examine works of art with experts in the field. Off-site visits also include artistsí studios, museum permanent collections, and, where relevant, special exhibitions and galleries. A priority is placed on case studies and discussions, and students are encouraged to build relationships within the group, in the hopes of enriching their own research.

Course Topic
The Artistís Book: Materials and Processes
June 9-20, 2014

A good understanding of material aspects of works of art is becoming increasingly important to art historical studies. The Artistís Book is a two-week, intensive seminar that examines how technical art history might simultaneously clarify and complicate established art historical narratives of this important art form. The program will focus on works from the modern era, and will consider a variety of different formats. These might include: traditional letterpress printed books, deconstructed texts and book blocks, artistsí photo books, and other unique works. Bound volumes, as well as forms like scrolls, fold-outs, concertinas, loose leaves kept in boxes, and e-books may all be examined. This topic will allow us to explore the intersections of book construction, photography, printmaking, and graphic design within the context of literature, both experimental and traditional.

Under the direction of Professors Constance Woo (Long Island University) and Michele Marincola (Institute of Fine Arts, New York University), participants will study with distinguished conservators, book artists, scholars and master craftspeople. We will consider specific artworks as case studies, examine materiality and process through close looking and recreation of techniques and processes, and create a book in the studio. Participants will ascertain how these methodologies materially and theoretically inform their own diverse research interests. This seminar will provide a forum to develop critical skills in the interpretation of object-based analyses related to the scholarship of artistís books.

Generously funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the seminar will be held at the Institute of Fine Art's Conservation Center, with selected sessions at area libraries, artist studios and in the conservation labs of New York Cityís leading museums.

Eligibility and Application Process:

Students currently enrolled in or completing a doctoral program in the US and Canada are eligible to apply. No background in science or conservation is required. A maximum of fifteen participants will be admitted to the program. Applicants will be evaluated on the basis of their academic accomplishment to date and on their expressed interest in integrating technical art history into their own research.

Applicants should submit a cover letter addressed to Professor Michele Marincola, Sherman Fairchild Chairman of the Conservation Center, Institute of Fine Arts, NYU; a statement of purpose of interest in integrating technical art history into their research; a letter of support from their advisor that addresses their academic standing and their interest in the topic; and an academic and professional CV.

The application deadline is March 24, 2014.


Please submit applications in electronic format to: Sarah Barack, course coordinator, sb340@nyu.edu

Funding:

Participants will receive housing (single room occupancy) and stipends of $1,300 to help defray travel and living costs. For further information, please contact Professor Michele Marincola at 212-992-5849, email: michele.marincola@nyu.edu
