Creative Responses to Hard Times
March 2, 2010
Two-Point Perspective Gallery Talk
Deborah Martin Kao, head curator and Richard L. Menschel Curator of Photography, Harvard Art Museum/Fogg Museum
Ryan McKittrick, dramaturg, American Repertory Theatre (A.R.T.)
Whitney Eggers, dramaturg for the A.R.T.’s Paradise Lost
Paradise Lost, a Depression-era play by Clifford Odets, raises questions about the nature of love, greed, loss, hope, empathy, and humanity. In connection with the American Repertory Theatre’s production of the play (February 27–March 20, 2010 at the Loeb Drama Center), this talk will consider how artists respond to hard times.
This popular series considers objects from more than one point of view. The informal talks, many of them by Harvard Art Museum curators, conservators, and educators and Harvard University faculty members, are designed to stimulate thinking about works of art and encourage participants to explore their own ways of seeing.
Free with the price of admission. Open to the public.
Gallery talks are informal and include discussion. Limited to 25 participants; please arrive early.
