Moving Statues: Towards an Eighteenth-Century Ontology of the Antique

, Abramson Family Recital Hall

Updated 1/22

Lecture by Sarah Betzer, Associate Professor, University of Virginia

While masterworks of ancient sculpture had long been the focus of admiration, the second half of the eighteenth century witnessed a sea change in how these objects were viewed and how they were mobilized for thinking through questions of aesthetics. Professor Sarah Betzer probes the key elements at the heart of antique sculpture's newly consolidated artistic and art philosophical centrality by way of interlocking circuits of objects and artists, viewers, and collectors, during the golden age of the Grand Tour. Free and open to the public.
