Trecento Conference Set

If you've been wondering what's up with the museum's biennial Trecento conference, here's some news:
Conference on Trecento Art in memory of Andrew Ladis
November 11-13, 2010

The Georgia Museum of Art and the University of Georgia have sponsored symposia on Italian art for almost two decades. In 2010, to honor the memory of Andrew Ladis (d. 2007), we are returning to our original concept: art of the 14th century. The 14th century we have in mind is a long one, from roughly 1260 through 1453. Rather than focusing on a single city, style, medium or artist, the conference will be open to any topic related to art produced in the Mediterranean basin that in some way reveals the impact of, exchange among or presumed hegemony of Italian art. The conference will meet in Athens, Ga., on the campus of the University of Georgia. Opening events are scheduled for Thursday, November 11, 2010, and papers will be presented on Friday and Saturday, November 12 and 13.

The conference is free and open to the public. All are welcome.

Proposal abstracts are to be submitted by May 8, 2010.

The conference is a major gathering for the field, and its proceedings have been published regularly, including, most recently, in "The Historian's Eye: Essays on Italian Art in Honor of Andrew Ladis," which is available for purchase from our online shop.
