The Department of History of Art & Architecture at the University of Pittsburgh is pleased to announce its 2012 graduate student symposium titled “Exhibition Complex: Displaying People, Identity, and Culture.” Organized in collaboration with the Carnegie Museum of Art, our topic is inspired by the museum's fall 2012 exhibition Inventing the Modern World: Decorative Arts at the World's Fairs, 1851-1939. This year's symposium sets out to analyze the many modes of display, types of artistic production, and built and existing structures that constitue ephemeral exhibition spaces. The keynote address will be delivered by Saloni Mathur, Associate Professor of Art History at UCLA and author of India by Design: Colonial History and Cultural Display (2007).
