Between ecstasy and inspiration: wine and music in the visual arts

This international conference is organized on occasion of the exhibition “Le Vin et la Musique: accords et désaccords (XVIe–XIXe siècle)”, hosted by La Cité du Vin, Bordeaux (March 23 to June 24, 2018, curator: Florence Gétreau, emerita at CNRS). The following partners are involved: Fondation pour la Culture et les Civilisations du Vin, International Musicological Society (IMS Study Group on Musical Iconography), Institut de Recherche en Musicologie (UMR 8223 of CNRS), University Paris-Sorbonne, and University Bordeaux Montaigne.
Not only is Bacchus (or Dionysus, in Greek) the God of drunkenness, sensual pleasures, fertility, creative inspiration, and religious ecstasy, but he is also associated with love, dance and music. This multifarious symbolism is at the core of many works of art, ceremonial objects, musical compositions and choreographies, evoking contexts that are at times cultic, festive, moralizing, and even philosophical. The conference will be devoted to the powerful union of the two realms of wine and music in the visual arts. It will broaden the general theme of the exhibition both in its temporality (from antiquity to the present day) and in the balance of cultural diversity between East and West, exploring the Greco-Roman as well as the Judeo-Christian, the Buddhist and Islamic civilizations, among others.
Papers on this theme from all disciplines will be considered, including anthropology, archeology, art history, history, musicology, cultural and performance studies. Suggested topics include mythology (the history, cult and iconography of Bacchus/Dionysus and bacchanalia, as well as related goddesses, meanads, and satyrs [e.g. Ceres, Silenus]); history (Anacreon); religious and Biblical subjects (the Wedding of Cana, Belshazzar’s banquet, Prodigal Son, Child Jesus at the Cluster); genre scenes (royal, aristocratic and popular banquets, merry companies, tavern and family scenes, royal entrances, urban festivals); still lifes and allegories (Five Senses, Virtues and Vices, inspiration), among others.
Presentations are limited to 20 minutes in length, allowing time for 10 minutes of questions and discussion. Communications via Skype will not be possible. Proposals in English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish, including abstract (max. 250 words) and short CV (max. 250 words) should be submitted by March 23, 2018 (deadline) to ims.bordeaux2018@cnrs.fr. Preference is given to proposals that address research topics and questions in an exemplary way. The Programme Committee will make its decision by April 15, 2018, and speakers will be informed immediately thereafter. Further information about the programme, registration, and accommodation will be available in due time. Selected papers will be published in Imago Musicae and Musique • Images • Instruments.
