This event, on December 3, will take a fresh look at women as collectors, patrons, exhibition organizers and museum founders in Europe in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Until recently, women’s contributions in these areas has been undervalued, not keeping up with the attention and critical recognition that women artists have received. Our three speakers will consider the achievements of some extraordinary and fascinating women in the art world whose accomplishments are less well known than their male counterparts of the period, though are equally significant.
The event will be held on December 3, 2020, 2:00-3:30 p.m. Hosted by Sandi Toksvig of Great British Baking Show and QI fame, the event will feature three, fifteen-minute talks by the speakers followed by a panel discussion. Presentations will include the following:
Meaghan Clarke, Senior Lecturer in Art History, University of Sussex
Shona Kallestrup, Associate Lecturer, School of Art History, University of St Andrews
Elizabeth Emery, Professor of French, Dept of World Languages and Cultures, Montclair State University
The panel discussion will be moderated by Thomas Stammers, Associate Professor (Modern European Cultural History) in the Department of History, Durham University.
