Art Shots: Creating Feminity
2:30 – 3 pm, Benefit Street Entrance
Throughout art history, the female figure has often functioned symbolically in works created by male painters. In a tour facilitated by Michelle Site (Brown University BS ‘14, Biology), we will examine how modernity and female artists have modified the female figure from a symbol to an independent entity. Considering the contrasting historical contexts and artist demographics we will explore how historical trends, painterly choices, and artistic intent synthesize the female figure.
Explore art and design through gallery talks spanning centuries and cultures from the perspective of student artists and art historians.
