Taking the Figure for a Walk: Three Contemporary Artists

Dates: 
April 27, 2013
Times: 
Saturday, 2 p.m.
Location: 
Farnsworth Auditorium
This richly illustrated lecture will provide context for the work of Ellen Berkenblit, Juan Gomez, and Julian Opie—three artists featured in the Other Voices exhibition (on view in the Nevelson Gallery through Feb. 2). Art writer and independent curator Britta Konau will address the significance of these three artists in the larger contemporary art world and their unique explorations of the human figure. At various stages of their careers and utilizing artistic styles that differ widely, their figurative exploration is deeply informed by past art as well as contemporary popular culture.
 
Lecturer Britta Konau is an independent art critic, writer, and curator.
Location: Farnsworth auditorium
