Linssen Co-chairs Panel at 2016 College Art Association Conference

Dalia Linssen (Lecturer, History of Art + Visual Culture) co-chaired a panel at the 2016 College Art Association Conference in Washington, D.C. The panel, Window/Lens/Mirror: the Materiality of Glass in Modern and Contemporary Art, engaged critically with the material of glass and its surrounding rhetoric of transparency, translucence, reflection, surface, and fragility.

The papers presented explored a range of topics, including the Nazi appropriation of Bauhaus glass objects; the fracturing and fabrication of Surrealist window displays in 1930s New York; the perceptual dissolution of the mirrored self in contemporary art; and the application of nanoscience technology and diachroic glass in contemporary architectural practice.
