INTERNATIONAL STUDY DAY
Ribera’s Art of Violence: New Intersections and Interventions
Dulwich Picture Gallery is holding a study day inspired by the exhibition Ribera: Art of Violence. Examining Ribera’s art from various interdisciplinary perspectives, the event will bring together established and emerging voices to explore new approaches to the artist, his works, myths and audiences. The study day will be structured around the exhibition’s five thematic sections: Religious Violence; Skin and the Five Senses; Crime and Punishment; The Bound Figure; and Mythological Violence. Situating his paintings, prints and drawings within their historical context, this event will address the relevance of Ribera’s violent imagery in contemporary art and thought.
