The next colloquium of the North American Branch of AIEMA will take place at the Baltimore Museum of Art on Friday
and Saturday, October 6-7, 2017. We wish to bring together specialists in ancient mosaics, wall painting, and stuccoes,
allowing for a scholarly exchange about these different artistic media.
Proposed colloquium themes include the following:
- Mosaic conservation, museum collections, and current mosaic exhibitions
- Decorative ensembles in public and private spaces, relating mosaics, wall painting, and stuccoes (if present) and their architectural setting
- Iconographic and stylistic studies, and the identification of local and regional workshops
- New discoveries of mosaics
Abstracts of proposed papers should contain 150-200 words of text, in addition to identifying the presenter’s names and professional affiliation and providing a title for the proposed talk.
Length of papers is 15 minutes, and they should be given in PowerPoint format.
We ask that abstracts be sent by May 31, 2017
