Rethinking Albert Moore – Fri 14 Jul 2017

Rethinking Albert Moore

Date: Friday 14 July 2017, 9:00 am - 8:00 pm
Venue: King's Manor

In conjunction with York Art Gallery’s exhibition, ‘Albert Moore: Of Beauty and Aesthetics’, the University of York’s History of Art department presents a study day focusing on the life and work of the artist Albert Joseph Moore (1841-1893) and the history of York School of Art in the period of his lifetime (c. 1840-1900).

The conference will seek to refocus debates around Albert Moore, his work, as well as his social and professional networks. We will re-interrogate Moore’s frequent association with Aestheticism in the visual arts, to explore other, less well-known historical contexts for his practice, review his critical presentation as an outsider alienated from the institutional structures of the metropolis and more generally to consider what new methodological approaches might be necessary to ‘make sense of Moore’.
