John F. Kennedy Institute for North American Studies, Freie Universität Berlin, June 28 - July 29, 2017

International Symposium:
“At Home and Abroad: Movement, Influence, and Circulation in North American Art”

28-29 JUNE 2017

John F. Kennedy Institute for North American Studies
Freie Universität Berlin
Lanstrasse 7-9
Berlin

This international symposium will focus on exploring transcultural exchanges of North American artists and art objects from the late eighteenth century to the early twentieth century. Papers will address the movement and displacement of North American artists and the circulation of physical art objects in North America and Europe, such as paintings and prints, during a broad time frame. Issues of audience and viewership across North America and Europe will also be considered, along with the varied forms of influence and knowledge from sources such as newspapers, letters, and copies of graphic material.

Seeking to stimulate an interdisciplinary exchange, this symposium brings together invited scholars and curators working in universities and museums in the United States, Canada, Germany, and the United Kingdom.
