Art in the Periphery International Conference – Hommage to Foteini Vlachou

Escrito em 13 de março de 2019


14 – 16 March 2019, Lisbon

About the Conference:
Paying hommage to the work of Foteini Vlachou (1975-2017), this conference aims to discuss the concept of periphery while focusing on the geographic and thematic areas that have been neglected by traditional and/or canonical art history. It seeks to push the discussion towards the understanding of the periphery as plural, historical and changeable, focusing on the non-linearity of cultural processes and historical time, and the non-universality of the artistic canons.

Keynote speakers:
– Béatrice Joyeux-Prunel
– Terry Smith

16 MARCH, 18:15
ROUND TABLE: Presentation and discussion of Foteini Vlachou’s book The Disappointed Writer (2019). Chair: Mariana Pinto dos Santos (IHA)
With Terry Smith, Béatrice Joyeux-Prunel, Joana Cunha Leal, Alicia Miguélez, Eleonora Vratskidou
