Object Lessons in American Art: An Overview

Karl Kusserow, John Wilmerding Curator of American Art, Princeton University Art Museum

$10 (Members 10% discount)

Join exhibition curator Karl Kusserow for an overview of the special exhibition, Object Lessons. Hear how the 19th-century concept of an "object lesson" is being deployed at Princeton with the traveling exhibition and future University Art Museum. The show's display juxtaposes objects that originate from diverse American contexts in order to create new meaning, provoking timely questions about history and contemporary culture. Hear about groupings that tackle topics like patriotism, the racialized landscape, gender constructs, and the surrealist body, with artists Mary Cassatt, John Singleton Copley, Robert S. Duncanson, the Guerrilla Girls, Ammi Phillips, and more.
