About the Event

All art is illusionistic by nature. Most artists use illusionary techniques to depict reality, but some use illusions to depict the illusionary nature of art and perception. We as the viewers are sometimes, but not always, aware of what we are looking at is real, a depiction of the real, a reflection of the real, a symbolical version of the real or if we ourselves are the illussion!

This talk will explore the idea of illusions in historical art through the themes of mirrors, trompe d’oeil and dressing up.
