Gallery Talk

Unmasking Influences


Friday, October 20, 2017
2 – 3 pm
Exhibition Galleries

In this gallery talk, led by Chris Gartrell, Assistant Manager of Adult Programs, investigate the exhibition Modigliani Unmasked and explore the complex ways in which Modigliani was inspired by non-Western art as he developed his own distinctive vision. How do we interpret Modigliani’s relationship to his source material and engage with his work a century later?
