Anderman Photography Lecture Series: Nate Larson & Marni Shindelman

Working collaboratively since 2007, Nate Larson and Marni Shindelman give visual form to the thoughts we release to the social media stream. From geotagged data embedded in Twitter feeds, the artists find places where people stop to share a moment of their lives online. By pairing their photographs with texts from the original tweets Larson and Shindelman’s work memorializes these ephemeral expressions and connects us with the world in all its variety: whether banal, humorous, or poignant.

Glory of Venice: An Artistic Evolution

This four session course will take participants on an extraordinary exploration of the creativity of Venice spanning the mid-1400s to early 1800s, a time when artists forged a Renaissance style that was distinctly Venetian. In the first session, Angelica Daneo, Curator of Painting and Sculpture, will share her curatorial insights on the special exhibition Glory of Venice: Masterworks of the Renaissance which spans one of the most creative times in Venetian art history, when painters developed their own distinctive Renaissance style based on a sensitive understanding of the constructive and defining potential of light and color. In sessions 2 and 3, art historian Giulia Bernardini will lead an investigation into works of art and architecture from the fifteenth and sixteenth century that served to reinforce the civic and social cohesion so vital to maintaining Venice’s identity as La Serenissima (The Most Serene Republic).” In the final session, Molly Medakovich, Teaching Specialist for Adult Programs, will lead an exploration of Venice through the eyes of 18th-century artists.

Idol Becomes Art: African Art and the West

Join acclaimed African art scholar and filmmaker Susan Vogel for a screening of her short film “Fang: An Epic Journey” (8-min).

Following the screening Vogel will explore the history of the African art trade in the West and the changing perceptions and reception of African art in Europe and the United States.

 

Dr. Susan Vogel is an art historian and has held the positions of curator at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Founding Director of the Museum for African Art, Director of the Yale University Art Gallery, and Professor of Art History at Columbia.
