Representing Iconoclasm:Paint, Print, Performacne by Wendy Bellion

This talk will explore nineteenth-century representations of colonial iconoclasm - such as the 1776 destruction of a statue of King George III in New York- and the re-performance of that action in civic pageants and parades, which often included ephemeral reproductions of the destroyed statue.  This lecture is also serving as the keynote address for the Center for Historic American Visual Culture (CHAViC) fall conference.
