Art of the Armenian diaspora
Avril 28th - 30th, 2010
30 Ormiańska str.
Armenians settled in Central Europe starting from the 14th century, first in the Old Polish Commonwealth, in Hungary, Moldavia and Transylvania, and later also in Austria and Bohemia. So far, Armenian art from these regions has no been the object of any bigger, separate scholarly undertakings devoted to the Armenian diaspora in Europe.
The conference is planned in two parts, the first one presenting papers on the art of Armenia, the Osman state and Persia, from where many artworks, primarily textiles, carpets and goldsmithing products were exported in modern times. Presentations will include objects of art brought with them by Armenian immigrants and held now in collections in Poland, Ukraine, Romania, Serbia and Austria.
The second part of the conference is planned to cover presentations of art of the Armenian diaspora from the historical territories of Hungary, the Old Commonwealth, Moldavia, Transylvania, Austria and the Osman state. It is also intended to highlight the artistic ties between the centers in France and Italy in the 18th and 19th centuries.
Issues connected with the economic rivalry between Armenians and the Greeks and Jews, and the Armenians’ assimilation in their new countries of residence will be treated in a separate thematic block.
Art historians, archaeologists, ethnologists, Church historians, artwork restorers
