The Art of Quotation and the Miniaturized Gallery. Saturday 6 June 2015, 10 – 5pm, The House of Illustration, London: Peter Otto (Melbourne), David Worrall (Roehampton/Nottingham Trent), Kate Heard (Royal Collection), Susan Matthews (Roehampton), Bethan Stevens (Sussex). Supported by the University of Roehampton and the Bibliographical Society. Organised with the assistance of House of Illustration.
This session follows two themes:
1. Miniaturization: Is the illustration a form of gallery? How does visual meaning change when an image is resized?
2. The Art of Quotation: How were literary quotations used to conceptualise visual images? How important are framing devices to the meaning of an image?
…and other related questions.
