    Mobilizing Bodies in 18th-Century French Art

    David Pullins, PhD candidate, Department of History of Art and Architecture, Harvard University

    Rather than considering likeness as the artist’s objective when depicting the human body, this talk examines how artists in 18th-century France used the representation of the body to convey a wide range of social, cultural, and political meaning. Discussion will focus on works in the installation The Origins of Modernity: The "New" 18th Century.

    Free with the price of admission. Open to the public.

    Limited to 25 participants; please arrive early.

    Gallery talks are informal and include discussion.
