Figuratively Speaking: The Body in Art
The representation of the human body in art has taken many forms, from images of ideal beauty to those that focus on the body as a way to explore issues of identity. From Picasso’s Women of Algiers which draws upon the western tradition of the odalisque, to Barnett Newman’s address of the human body and spirit in his “zip” paintings, to Lynette Yiadom-Boakye’s enigmatic and imaginary portraits, this talk will bring together a diverse range of artists who's creative process centers on the body.
Date & Time: July 8, 1:00pm EST
