art history

Orleans House Gallery, Twickenham

Until 23 January 2011

This open exhibition explores how and why contemporary artists approach famous artworks - the perceived ‘masterpieces’ of art history.

Works question notions of ‘originality’ and ‘authenticity.’ The exhibition includes meticulous exact copies in oil to radical reworkings in different or incongruous media.

Getting ready for the visual art/visualization panel now, and got here nice and early to nab one of the very few outlets in the room (my first live blog of the day - on Humanities Labs - was thwarted by the lack of power). Hopefully I won't get in trouble for endangering the health and safety of DHers. The theme this is organized around is to try to critique the use of digital tools and methods in art history and history, so the focus is on tools and resources rather than research questions.
