Lecture: Talavera Forum with UNT and the Crow Collection of Asian Art

Crow Collection logoCome to the Crow this Friday to show support to 2016 methods students from UNT CVAD. These students will be presenting papers about artifacts they studied in the exhibition, Clay Between Two Seas: From the Abbasid Court to Puebla de los Angeles.

The students are presenting as part of the Collections, Cultures and Collaborations methods series that engages undergraduate- and graduate-level art history majors enrolled in art history methods in studying artworks first-hand from private, public, or corporate collections and developing scholarly methods of examining the works. Excerpts from student research are then shared in extended exhibition label texts and lectures in the UNT Gallery or off-site in presentations where a collection is located.

The following papers will be presented:

  • Cassandra Roberts, Blessing the user: The consumption of an Islamic earthenware bowl
  • Rachel Ford, Iconography of a musician: Notes from cross-cultural research
  • Annalisa Giannotti, Fashionability in collecting Islamic ceramics in America
  • Donna DeBlois, Sonic historiography from avant-garde Talavera
  • Jungwan Kim, Narrativizing cultural exchange: Museum exhibitions of Chinese blue and white porcelain ceramics
