FORART LECTURE 2019: Whitney Davis on Pictorial Art and Global Psychological Modernity

In this lecture, Whitney Davis (Berkeley) will discuss the evolutionary modernity of picture-making in the human species.

Sep. 13, 2019 6:00 – 8:00 PM, Litteraturhuset, Amalie Skram-salen

Pictorial Art and Global Psychological Modernity will deal with new research on the evolutionary 'modernity' of picture making in the human species (from c. 40,000 BCE), the problem of pre-modern-human 'pictures' (before c. 40,000 BCE), and, most important, in what ways the making of pictures 'modernized' the 'modern human' perceptual and cognitive systems (in place by c. 200,000 BCE) and form of life - creating a new kind of world into which human beings were integrated. The lecture will combine approaches from art history, paleoanthropology, archaeology, cognitive evolution, and aesthetics.
