As part of the Terra Foundation for America Art’s Art Design Chicago initiative, I am delighted to be speaking alongside Erika Doss (University of Notre Dame) about the sculpture of Virginio Ferrari for an event organized by University of Chicago Arts and the Department of Art History. The event will occur at the Cochrane Woods Art Center on 8 November, 5-7pm. My paper 'Taking Flight: Virginio Ferrari and the Jet Age' will use his 'Volo Tragico' series (1963-4) as a departure point to explore the transatlantic contexts for Ferrari’s early work, and its position within a post-war sculptural idiom preoccupied by the experience of flight.
