“Between Word and Image” Fellows to Host Symposium

On October 25th and 26th, the Warren Center will sponsor a two-day campus symposium organized by its 2006-2007 “Between Word and Image” Fellows and designed to coincide with a Vanderbilt Fine Arts Gallery exhibition co-curated by the Warren Center Fellows and the gallery’s director, Joseph Mella. The exhibition, “More Than One: New Contemporary Prints and Multiples from the Vanderbilt University Fine Arts Collection," on view from October 4 - December 7, will showcase the gallery’s recent acquisitions in the permanent collection and will highlight those which reflect the relation between word and image, a question the seminar group spent the year exploring. In addition, the Fellows commissioned local artist Erika Johnson to create an original installation to be included in the exhibition. The concurrent symposium will feature a keynote address by Arthur C. Danto, Jonsonian Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at Columbia University and art critic for The Nation; entitled “Before and After: Two Decades After the Sistine Chapel Controversy,” the lecture will take place on October 25 at 4:10 in Wilson Hall 103. In addition, David Morgan, the Phyllis and Richard Duesenberg Professor in Christianity and the Arts at Valparaiso University, will present a noon lecture on October 26 in Buttrick Hall 123. Following the Fine Arts Gallery exhibition, Johnson’s art work will be on permanent display at the Warren Center.
