ICYMI: The SIX Magazine, the annual publication of College Leadership Council for the College of Fine Arts, is now out! SIX takes its name from the six academic departments within the College – Art, Art Education, Art History, Dance, Interior Architecture & Design, and Theatre. Work from students in all departments is represented in the magazine. Pick up a copy in the Dean's Office in FAB on campus or read it now: fla.st/KN9K63MG

Today's Student Spotlight belongs to Brittney Pieper from the FSU Department of Art History and Meg Murphy from FSU Dance!

An excerpt from Brittney's essay, "Indigenous Resilience in Times of Colonization, Seen Through the 'Mass of St. Gregory'", is included in this year's magazine. It is an examination of an indigenous recreation of a European print and how it represents indigenous cultures negotiating the influence of colonization.

Stills from Meg's dance film, "Heavenly Body," represent the idea of the body carrying spirituality and sacred space inside a church. The film questions who and what is considered holy.

Be sure to check out the full magazine!

ICYMI: WJB Gallery recently opened their newest exhibition, "Life Framed: Everyday Objects and the Still Life", curated by the students of the FSU Department of Art History Museum Object class!

What objects reflect your everyday life? Exploring the tradition of still life, this exhibition features objects and art works drawn from and reflecting upon our daily lives. Some of these works are traditional, while others push the boundaries of what constitutes a still life.

We invite you to consider the differences between arranged and found compositions, the effects of imposing a frame, and whether the artist’s engagement with tangible objects is essential to the concept of a still life. There is even a "Make Your Own Still Life" station!

Undergraduate students in the Spring 2021 Museum Object course spent the semester curating Show & Tell, an online exhibition of artists’ books. They collaborated with FSU Libraries Special Collections & Archives and the Small Craft Advisory Press (SCAP) and endeavored to use this year’s non-traditional exhibition format to their advantage. The students combined photographs, video documentation, and audio narration to convey the multimedia experiences inherent to the books themselves.

Calling all art lovers! You’re invited to How to Resist Expectations: Instructions-Based Art in Practice, an online exhibition curated by FSU students opening Monday, November 30th. Our “Museum Object” class (@arthistoryfsu) researched and executed instructions-based and Conceptual works by artists who used their practices as a platform for resistance. This exhibition highlights that these works have been used to protest expectations and continue to do so during a worldwide pandemic. Visit https://www.instructionsbasedart.com and be sure to leave your thoughts about the exhibition in the Guest Book!

Home | FSU Museum Object Through executions of instructions-based and Conceptual art, the student curators of this exhibition explore how modern and contemporary artists have used their practice to shift conventions surrounding systems of power, the role of the object, and authorship.

Time for “Guess who.” Which FSU art historian owns this Turkish kilim (and belongs to this cat)? “Kilim” describes a type of rug that uses a flat weave. This is specifically a kilim çuval (or “rug sack”) that is about 100 years old and was previously used as a dowry bag - it has now been cut open into a single square in order to be a floor rug or wall hanging. We use it as a decorative hanging and it is currently the favorite sitting spot for our cats. We bought it from Kirkit Rugs in Avanos, Central Anatolia/Cappadocia, Turkey.

Today we present the crisp virtuoso performances of Tom Blackwell (1938–2020), a lesser-known member of the first generation of American photorealists. In paintings of store windows, motors, and motorcycles, Blackwell delighted in the play of light on chrome surfaces and through layers of glass, transforming everyday scenes and objects into a compositional feast for the eyes.

“I have never ridden a motorcycle. I know nothing about them,” Blackwell once said. But he was captured by their aesthetic beauty early in his career. “Here is, on the street, this ordinary thing that anybody would walk by and not give it a second thought. But if you really stopped and looked at it, it was quite amazing,”
The first photorealists, working independently of each other, had in common the creation of a new visual tradition, rendering everyday subjects in a precise hyperrealistic style. Like other photorealists, Blackwell started with scenes frozen in time in photographs, then recreated in paint the play of light and shadow on objects with amazing technical skill. His works are in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim in New York; his depiction of an airplane motor, “White Lightning,” hangs in the National Air and Space Museum of the Smithsonian Institution.

Blackwell succumbed to complications of COVID-19 on April 8, 2020 at the age of 82

In our Art at Home series, Dr. Kristin Dowell shares her Andy Everson lithograph “Idle No More!“⁣ This striking image featuring a raised fist with an eagle feather, rendered in West Coast formline style. It became a powerful symbol of the Idle No More Indigenous rights activist movement. In the winter of 2012-13 activists demonstrated against several damaging bills that the Canadian government sought to pass to expropriate land and extract resources without consent on Indigenous land.

On this unusual Easter weekend, our students bring you an unusual Easter painting and wonder if you can identify the artist or time period.

German Expressionist Emil Nolde (1867–1956) brought together fervent religiosity and love of stormy dissonant color in his 9-panel polyptych The Life of Christ. In his youth, he made a living as a wood-carver, and the crude draftsmanship of his composition seems to reflect a woodworker’s aesthetic as well as Nolde’s admiration for the power of unsophisticated faith. In the Resurrection panel, a mixture of bright pinks and violets creates an aura around Christ as he rises from the blue open tomb. The figure of Christ is a mixture of dark warm tones without details, but the viewer can easily understand his importance in the image. The three violently shocked guards are depicted with bright red and green faces, the front-most facing the viewer with distressed black features. This unique composition differs significantly from Renaissance and Baroque religious depictions.

We never imagined we would have to stay apart to protect each other, but we’re impressed at the way our community has risen to the challenge. We wish you all peace this spring, and a renewal of all the things that matter most to you.

Our Story

Art History at Florida State University

The Art History program is the first in Florida, among the highest ranked in the Southeast, and one of the largest by enrollment in the country. It is known for research and instruction in a range of fields with particular depth in Medieval and Modern art and the Visual Cultures of the Americas. The department offers the BA and PhD in Art History and MAs in Art History and Museum and Cultural Heritage Studies. Student opportunities for hands-on experience include a yearlong internship at The Ringling Museum, fieldwork at the department’s historic archaeology field school, and training in exhibition development through collaboration with other state and university museums. Current enrollment consists of 144 undergraduate majors and minors, 31 MAs, and 25 doctoral students. In seven years, Art History students have earned 22 doctoral degrees; eight of these graduates are in tenure-track art history teaching positions and ten in other faculty positions. Of 55 recent MA recipients, 43 are either continuing their education or working in higher education or arts agencies. The eleven core Art History faculty are dedicated teachers, researchers, and scholars, supported and recognized by the National Endowment for the Humanities, Institute for Advanced Study, Fulbright Scholar Program, Getty Research Institute, American Philosophical Society, Daedalus Foundation, and Samuel H. Kress Foundation, among other international institutions.

Since 1981, the department has hosted an annual Art History Graduate Symposium, drawing young scholars from around the country to network and share research. The conference proceedings are published by the department and the Museum of Fine Arts Press in our journal Athanor, collected by 300 libraries and institutions across America and Europe. The Symposium keynote lecturer is one of four distinguished scholars we bring to Tallahassee each year as part of the Vincent and Agatha Thursby Visiting Scholars Lecture Series.

The Department of Art History, part of the FSU College of Fine Arts, is located in the William Johnston Building, a historic structure built in 1913, enlarged in 1939, and most recently restored in 2011 with the addition of a stunning glass-enclosed atrium, art library, computer labs, and a gallery for student-centered and student-curated exhibitions.
