Carolyn Dean presents "A Stone, a Story, a Sculpture: Collaconcho in Context"

Inka (Inca) stone carving as practiced on immobile boulders and outcroppings of rock, located outdoors and often in highly public locations, has proved challenging to art historical analysis. Its mostly austere, abstract forms resist interpretation. Focusing on one of the better documented examples of stone carving—an impressive outcrop named Collaconcho by the Inkas—Dean considers the significance of specific abstract forms, as well as the ways meaning was achieved through the juxtaposition of the outcrop with other worked stones in Collaconcho’s environs. It will be suggested that, for Collaconcho and others like it, stone carving addressed imperial concerns regarding potentially resistant populations, but did so indirectly, employing visual analogy and what Dean identifies as an “empathetic perspective.”

Carolyn Dean, Professor of History of Art and Visual Culture at the University of California, Santa Cruz, studies Andean, particularly Inka, visual and performance culture both before and after Spanish colonization. She is interested in how the arts embed various, often-conflicting ontologies and how indigenous perspectives have been ignored, dismissed, and misconstrued from colonial times through the present. She has published numerous articles and two books: Inka Bodies and the Body of Christ (Duke University Press, 1999) and A Culture of Stone (Duke University Press, 2010).

Lawrence Hall, Room 200 - Design Library

Professor Kate Mondloch will talk about her newest book, A Capsule Aesthetic: Feminist Materialisms in New Media Art. The book examines three artists, Pipilotti Rist, Patricia Piccinini, and Mariko Mori, and the ways they address technology in their work. Mondloch lends unique insight into new media and new materialism through a feminist theory lens that allows for more exposure of human and non-human interactions.

Books by Design occurs once per term and features the work of a faculty member from the College of Design.

Immerse yourself inside a 16th century gothic prayer bead that fits inside the palm of your hand and explore the intricate carvings made visible through the power of micro-computed tomography (CT scanning) and virtual reality. Produced by the Canadian Film Centre’s Media Lab (CFC Media Lab) and Seneca College School of Creative Arts and Animation, this collaboration between AGO Conservator Lisa Ellis, and Interactive Artist/Designer Priam Givord marks the first time anyone will be able to move through, around and within one of these small wonders.

Sasha Suda presents "Small Wonders, Huge Success: Curating Medieval Sculpture in a Modern World.”

Marvels of human ingenuity, so small they can fit in the palm of your hand, miniature boxwood carvings from the early 1500s have long remained a mystery. Offering new insight into the methods of production and cultural significance of these awe-inspiring works of art, this lecture highlights more than four years of research that has used cutting-edge technology to understand these elegantly precise miniature rosaries, prayer beads and altarpieces.

This lecture event is based on Sasha’s recent exhibit at the Art Gallery of Ontario Small Wonders: Gothic Boxwood Miniatures, which is a groundbreaking exhibition of more than 60 boxwood miniatures organized in partnership with The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Rijksmuseum.
