The Glyptotek is known as a museum of world-class art and an oasis in the heart of the city. But are you aware of all the research projects that go on behind the scenes?
Start your day in the museum’s café and learn all about research at The Glyptotek. Three members of our staff will in turn give a short talk about their current PhD and Postdoc projects and the project’s relevance to the collection and the history of the building.
On the second morning in this series of three, Nicholas Kenton Parkinson will talk about Den Franske Kunstudstilling in 1888.
Copenhagen 1888: Den Franske Kunstudstilling is a two-year postdoctoral project (2019-2021) that explores Carl Jacobsen’s 1888 exhibition of nineteenth-century French artworks and the ambition towards establishing Copenhagen as an important centre of international modernism. The project is supported by the Novo Nordisk Foundation, through a Mads Øvlisen Postdoctoral Fellowship. Copenhagen 1888: Den Franske Kunstudstilling focuses on the examination of archives, including the Carl Jacobsen Correspondence Archive, and will result in a number of academic publications as well as an international conference.
Nicholas Parkinson, PhD, is a Novo Nordisk Mads Øvlisen Postdoctoral Fellow at the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek. His research examines artistic exchanges between France and Denmark in the late nineteenth century, with a focus on the power of politics and institutions on shaping art historical knowledge. Nicholas received his PhD in Art History from the State University of New York at Stony Brook, and has previously worked at the Pratt Institute and the Tenement Museum in New York.
