Visual Knowledge/Facing Blindness; Lecture by Bronwen Wilson

14 Jan

Early Modern Research Group and The Division of Art History Present the following lecture, free to all!

If vision and visuality have dominated histories and theories of early modern painting, then what was the function of depicting the blind? What is at stake, broadly, in assessing the tensions between blindness and sight, particularly in early modern painting? Professor Wilson’s paper explores these questions through a consideration of visual images of the human face made in late sixteenth-century Bologna.

Professor Bronwyn Wilson
Art History Visual and Theory, The University of British Columbia

When?: Friday January 16th, 4:00pm
