In connection with the exhibition An American Journey: The Art of John Sloan, curated by alumna Heather Campbell Coyle, the Delaware Art Museum held a symposium on Sloan and the Ashcan School on November 2-3, 2017.
John Sloan never traveled outside the United States. He was exposed to other cultures through friends who studied abroad, international art exhibitions, the transatlantic trade in prints and publications, and immigrants living in the U.S. This symposium will shed light on the international exchange of art and ideas that influenced the work of Sloan and his circle and shaped American art during his career.
In addition to other scholars, Department of Art History graduate students Alba Campo Rosillo, Margarita Karasoulas, Jordan Hillman, and Kristen Nassif explored the global conversations that inflected the work and critical reception of Sloan and his contemporaries.
Please see the flyer for more information. Details regarding the symposium "International Perspectives in the Era of John Sloan and the Ashcan School," can be found on the Delaware Art Museum website.
