6-7 November 2014, Lugano. From 28 September 2014 to 11 January 2015 the Museo Cantonale d’Arte in Lugano will host a major exhibition consecrated to Bartolomeo Suardi, known as Bramantino. The exhibition will trace the artist’s entire cultural and expressive itinerary, from the onset of his career to his very last works. Works of Bramantino will be shown alongside paintings, drawings, illuminated manuscripts, sculptures and goldsmith’s art which represent, in a tightly-knit web of exchanges and interferences, the most important Lombard figurative tendencies within the frame of the Italian Wars and the French rule of Lombardy (1499-1525). Since the exhibition will constitute an important opportunity to re-examine the works of Bramantino and of his contemporaries, the Museo Cantonale d’Arte promotes a two-day symposium to present and discuss the most recent studies of the researchers active in this field. The symposium will take place in Lugano from the 6th to the 7th of November 2014. The symposium aims at bringing together art historical presentations as well as technical and scientific investigations reports on specific works. The proceedings of the symposium will then be published in a volume of the series Biblioteca d’Arte Skira. Proposals in the form of an abstract of 2000 keystrokes for a contribution of max. 15-20 minutes should be sent with a brief CV by e-mail. Deadline: 31 July 2014.
