Description

This session presents papers that provide culturally and chronologically diverse perspectives on the relationship between particular artworks and external events. The session considers how art-making constitutes response to urgent concerns of the people who made buildings, objects, and images; examining how artworks were designed to shape their historical contexts in the aftermath of decisive events. The speakers characterize medieval productions as art of their contemporary moments, and ask us to consider the question of art's role in societal intervention or documentation.
