Annual seminar 2018
Symbolist Art and the Baltic Sea Region, 1880–1930
31 January – 2 February 2019 in cooperation with KUMU Art Museum

In collaboration with the exhibition “Wild. Souls. Symbolism in the Art of the Baltic Countries” (12 October 2018 – 3 February 2019 Kumu Art Museum), the Kumu Art Museum and the Estonian Society of Art Historians and Curators seek to address this lacuna with an international conference highlighting the transcultural networks of Symbolist art across the Baltic Sea Region between 1880 and 1930. As we strive to overcome the enduring national boundaries of art history, we envision the conference as a seminal opportunity specifically to bring Baltic Symbolism to an unprecedented level of international scholarly inquiry as well as an inimitable opportunity to foster a transnational, yet distinctly regional network of Symbolist scholars, curators, and specialists.
