    Physical Matter: Three Perspectives

    Presented by at Harvard Art Museums/Arthur M. Sackler Museum

    May 4, 2013


    Physical Matter: Three Perspectives

    Maja Wismer, Renke B. and Pamela M. Thye Curatorial Fellow in the Busch-Reisinger Museum, Division of Modern and Contemporary Art, Harvard Art Museums

    Three modern and contemporary works on view—by Willi Baumeister, Joseph Beuys, and Rosemarie Trockel— from the Busch-Reisinger Museum’s collection will be the focus of this talk. The objects can be seen as concerned with the construction and the physicality of the human body. Produced in a range of media (paint, ceramics, and iron) and spanning about a hundred years, they reveal a variety of approaches to the human form that gain power in the gallery setting as they relate in di?erent ways to the viewer’s own body.

    Free with the price of admission.

    Gallery talks are informal and include discussion. Limited to 25 participants; please arrive early.
