Our Art House Café Lecture Series kicked off its third season with the Art Gallery of Hamilton’s former Director of Curatorial Affairs, Dr. Benedict Leca.
Dr. Leca was instrumental in bringing the AGH’s monumental exhibition; Cézanne: The World is an Apple to Ontario’s third largest gallery.
This incredible talk took an in-depth, and very different look, at the world of Paul Cézanne; both as an artist and as a person.
Join us as our lecture series brings some of the most fascinating emerging scholars to the public for the first time,
featuring lectures with extensive research, new insights and exciting topics.
This Friday at 7pm, our series continues with Valeriya Kotsyuba, as she presents;
1066 and All That: An Examination of the Relationship between the Cult of Saints and Church
Architecture in England
A memorable architectural history of England, comprising all the parts you’ll want to remember, including 23 Saints, 5 architectural features, and 1 genuine date. All the rest is speculation.
The relationship between the cult of saints, and the effect of church construction after the Norman Conquest of England in 1066, should be determined by transforming conceptions of sacred space from small Anglo-Saxon structures in wood, to new Norman stone churches of a bigger size, the architecture thus changed to suit the needs of the new ruling class. Adopting local saints, or transporting them to new parishes, created a cross-cultural framework in architecture.
About Valeriya Kotsyuba:
Combining my love of studio practice and art history has led me to an interest in museums, not as static spaces, but as spaces capable of change. As a young curator, my interest in archives allows me to explore the past, and the possibilities of artwork. While my graduate work is focused on medieval architecture, notions of space and its possibility to change over time is fundamental to my practice. My research interests include the relationship between a person and architectural space, and how this relationship can change over time.
