Architecture as Icon: An Off-Site Gallery Talk by Dr. Katherine Marsengill
Thursday, May 6, 2010 at the Neighborhood Preservation Center
Princeton University’s exhibition, Architecture as Icon studied the perception and representation of architecture in Byzantine Art through an exhibit of rarely viewed objects from Greece, Romania, Armenia, and Russia. This was the first exhibit of its kind to move the focus of iconic artwork beyond the foreground images and acknowledge the often overlooked backgrounds, celebrating the relevance of architectural figures within the composition. Dr. Katherine Marsengill gave an illustrated presentation of works from the exhibit based on her gallery talk.  Katherine Marsengill received her BA and MA from  the University of Georgia, and Ph.D from Princeton University. This program was sponsored by the Neighborhood Preservation Center and by US/ICOMOS.
