Event Description

Coordinator of the Flemish Research Centre for the Arts in the Burgundian Netherlands
Vanessa Paumen 
“The Art of Law: Intersections of the Legal System and Art in the Low Countries (1450 -1475)”
6 p.m. October 26
University Galleries                     

Vanessa Paumen, of the Groeningemuseum in Bruges, Belgium, recently co-curated an exhibition, The Art of Law, which featured more than 20 of these punitive art works from the collections around Europe. She will discuss this artwork and the recently closed exhibition. Paumen’s talk will examine how this tradition developed during the Ancien Régime (1450-1475) and how this practice changed following the radical judicial reforms following the French Revolution.

The talk is part of the Illinois State University Speaker Series. The series seeks to bring innovative and enlightening speakers to the campus with the aim of providing the community with a platform to foster dialogue, cultivate enriching ideas, and continue an appreciation of learning as an active and lifelong process. All talks are free and open to the public.
