Report from the Edith O’Donnell Institute of Art History Research Center

The O’Donnell Institute has an exciting array of programs for the spring semester! 

On January 29 Dr. Ittai Weinryb, Associate Professor of Art History at Bard Graduate Center, will give a workshop talk That Moment of Complexity at the Research Center on votive offerings. 

In February EODIAH Lecturer Dr. Ali Alibhai will discuss his current research on Moroccan bell-lamps. 

On March 29-30 the O’Donnell Institute and the DMA will present a two-day event exploring the life and work of Impressionist painter Berthe Morisot.

Our graduate fellows will present their dissertation research throughout the semester, with topics ranging from globalization and new Bollywood cinema to American Athenaea. 

Our visiting ISAAC post-doctoral fellows will share their respective research on twentieth-century African American Art and the significance of “place-making” in Isamu Noguchi’s work.

This spring will also include workshops with two of the recently arrived curators at the DMA: Sarah Schleuning, Senior Curator of Decorative Arts and Design, and Katherine Brodbeck, The Nancy and Tim Hanley Associate Curator of Contemporary Art.

The Research Center promises to be a lively center of scholarly activity this spring. We look forward to the coming semester and welcome you to our many spring programs.
