Conference on Trecento Art

The Georgia Museum of Art and the Lamar Dodd School of Art are hosting their biennial conference on trecento art, which this time is being held in memory of Andrew Ladis. The conference will be held from November 11 to 13 at the Lamar Dodd School of Art.

Twenty-eight speakers from around the world (Russia, Poland, Germany, England, France, Italy, Canada) and the United States will present papers addressing issues related to the 14th century in Italy and the Mediterranean Basin.

The conference will begin on November 11 with greetings and welcome from the Association of Graduate Art Students representative, Kathryn Hall, and GMOA’s director, William U. Eiland.

Following the introductions, Marvin Trachtenberg, of the Institute of Fine Arts at New York University, will present the 2010 Alfred Heber Holbrook Memorial Lecture. This year, the topic is “Building-in-Time: Thinking and Making Architecture in the Premodern Era.”

The Trecento Conference is free and open to the public. A full schedule for all three days can be found on the Lamar Dodd website.

The Lamar Dodd School of Art is located at 270 River Road at the University of Georgia in Athens, Ga.
