Forthcoming Publication from Professor Whitney Davis

Whitney Davis (George C. and Helen N. Pardee Professor of History and Theory of Ancient and Modern Art at UC Berkeley), is publishing Visuality and Virtuality: Images and Pictures from Prehistory to Perspective with Princeton University Press, forthcoming, November 2017 (ISBN: 9780691171944).

Visuality and Virtuality

From the Princeton University Press website:

“This book builds on the groundbreaking theoretical framework established in Whitney Davis’s acclaimed previous book, A General Theory of Visual Culture, in which he shows how certain culturally constituted aspects of artifacts and pictures are visible to informed viewers. Here, Davis uses revealing archaeological and historical case studies to further develop his theory, presenting an exacting new account of the interaction that occurs when a viewer looks at a picture.

A profound new theory of the work of both makers and viewers by one of the discipline’s most esteemed and engaged thinkers, Visuality and Virtuality is essential reading for art historians, architects, archaeologists, and philosophers of art and visual theory.”

Professor Julia Bryan-Wilson Publishes New Book: “Fray: Art and Textile Politics”

Fray: Art and Textile Politics

Professor Julia Bryan-Wilson publishes a new book, Fray: Art and Textile Politics, due out in September from the University of Chicago Press.

From the University of Chicago Press website:

“The first contemporary art history book to discuss both fine art and amateur registers of handmaking at such an expansive scale, Fray unveils crucial insights into how textiles inhabit the broad space between artistic and political poles—high and low, untrained and highly skilled, conformist and disobedient, craft and art.”

Join Julia Bryan-Wilson as she launches her new book Fray: Art and Textile Politics (University of Chicago, 2017), in conversation with artist Angela Hennessy and art historian Richard Meyer. Thurs. Sept. 7 at 5:15pm at the Berkeley Art Museum/Pacific Film Archive.
