John López Mapping Art History at Sac State Event
John López will be the keynote speaker for CSU Sacramento’s 15th Festival of the Arts. His talk, “Mapping Aztec Territorial Consciousness,” will launch their Art History symposium “Mapping Art History.”
The Festival of the Arts runs from Tuesday April 10 to Sunday, April 15. The Art History symposium is scheduled for Saturday, April 14, 2018 from 1-5 pm in Mendocino Hall, Room 1005.
The 15th Festival of the Arts will reflect on the global turn in art history scholarship by focusing on “mapping”, the primary new method 21st-century scholars use to breach historical (19th-20th C) nation-state borders in order to visualize and comprehend the real transnational and pre-national connections among world artists and cultures.
Hillary Olcott, Assistant Curator of the Arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, will speak on “Mapping Teotihuacan,” and Jennifer Donnelly, Itinera Project Manager at University of Pittsburgh, will discuss “Itinera as Methodology: Mapping Alexander von Humboldt’s South American Journey.”
