18 Sept. The American University of Rome (AUR) presents From the Paradox of a Museum of Modern Art to the Challenge of the 'Virtual Feminist Museum', a talk by Prof. Griselda Pollock, on Wednesday 18 September at 19.00.
An internationally renowned art historian and cultural theorist, Pollock is professor of Social & Critical Histories of Art at the University of Leeds and director at the Centre for Cultural Analysis, Theory & History (CentreCATH).
The talk - part of The American University of Rome's 50th Anniversary Lecture Series - will see Pollock take up Gertrude Stein’s "incisive comment that, of all things, the modern cannot be in a museum. So, what was new and remarkable in the creation of this paradoxical institution: a musealization of modern art? What has been its long-term legacy in shaping ‘a half-empty museum’ and writing in space a disfiguringly ‘incomplete history’? How have feminists critiqued its damaging effects on our sense of who the moderns were and, as a result, we are now?"
