Special course offering for Spring 2019: History of the Visual Culture of Ireland

The Art Department is pleased to offer a special undergraduate Art History course for Spring 2019: The History of the Visual Culture of Ireland with Dr. Kayla Rose on Wednesdays, 4:30-7:10. The course is open to all undergraduate students and cross-listed with ARTH 200, HI 164, and IRST 390.

This course will explore the rich visual history of Ireland, Northern Ireland, and Irish communities abroad. Artistic styles from the ancient and medieval period will form an essential part of the class, though we will also focus on artistic expressions of the early modern era through to the present day, examining how they affected and were affected by events such as the Great Famine, the Celtic Revival, and the War of Independence. Students will gain a unique opportunity to understand how art and visual culture can illuminate history, and reveal insights about one country’s rich and violent past.

Dr. Kayla Rose is Adjunct Assistant Professor in Art History at City University of New York (CUNY) Queensborough Community College. She has previously worked as Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Bath Spa University and Research Fellow in Design History on the AHRC and Design Council project, ‘Bristol and Bath by Design’. She also holds an MPhil in Irish Art History from Trinity College Dublin and a BA (Hons) in Art History and Criticism from Stony Brook University (SUNY) in New York.

Students interested in registering can contact the Art Department by phone or email!

Call for Artists: Creative Time

Are you a New York City-based artist with an exciting idea for a public project? Between December 10 and January 18, Creative Time is accepting proposals for a new public commission to be exhibited in the spring/summer of 2019. The open call is an opportunity for emerging artists to experiment in the public realm, and utilize Creative Time’s 40+ year history of realizing artists’ dream projects.

Ideas can be bold and ambitious, and there is no secret formula for size or scale – proposals can range from the unassuming to a dramatic gesture. Above all, it should be timely, and hold the potential to spark critical public exchange.
