- What’s On
An International Symposium at Trinity College Dublin and, in association with, the Chester Beatty Library.
‘A new modernity is emerging, reconfigured to an age of globalisation understood in its economic, political and cultural aspects: an Altermodern culture.’ Altermodern Manifesto (Bourriaud 2009).
Applying a 21st-century Altermodern approach to art history and visual culture, this one day symposium aims to bring together international scholars working in the fields of European, North African and Middle Eastern art history. Considering a wide scope of 19th and early 20th-century artistic travel, the symposium aims to discuss visual cross-cultural dialogue between these geographical regions.
