Please join us on Wednesday, February 9, at 7PM EST for Materiality and the Nineteenth–Century Decorative Arts, the February Virtual Salon co-sponsored by the Association of Historians of Nineteenth-Century Art (AHNCA) and the Dahesh Museum of Art. This online event is free and open to the public, but registration is required: https://tinyurl.com/19decarts.
In this Salon, Amy F. Ogata (Moderator), Lee Talbot, and Christine Garnier will discuss questions of materiality and the decorative arts in the nineteenth century. Their discussion will explore the environmental origins and processing of materials, the significance of materiality expressed in decorative forms to cultural identity, and the broader ways that histories of materiality, applied arts and art history might be understood together. The discussion will be followed by a Q&A and, after the event, there will be a break-out room where attendees can socialize informally.
