    Caging the sky: art, history and anthropology of aviaries

    Deeply rooted in the long history of technology, architectural construction, and the domestication and acclimatisation of animal species by humans, aviaries are an interdisciplinary research subject offering multiple approaches for studying both past and present bonds, connecting societies to their environment, to explore the place of birds in the collective imaginary, but also to appreciate the originality of works or constructions that were conceived in order to  represent, signify or house animal life. They make a spectacle of the flight of birds for the external observer and tend to celebrate the captivity of animals as a state of “semi-freedom”.

    "Aiutando l’arte". Inscriptions in Tridentine decors in Italy

    La dépréciation du recours aux inscriptions par la théorie artistique du Cinquecento se voit tempérée lors du Concile de Trente par la volonté ecclésiastique d'un encadrement des pratiques de l'image. Pour comprendre les enjeux et explorer les modalités de cette revalorisation momentanée du rôle didactique de l'écrit au sein de l'image, cette journée d'étude sera consacrée à l’importance, à la place, aux types, aux formes et enfin aux fonctions des inscriptions et écritures qui font retour en nombre dans les décors religieux monumentaux d’Italie pendant la seconde moitié du XVIe siècle et au début du XVIIe siècle.
