Members’ Gallery Talk of Bow Down: Queens in Art and Cunningham Center visit With Maggie Kurkoski ’12, Brown Post-Baccalaureate Curatorial Fellow and exhibition curator
From intimate visions to official state portraits, what are we seeing when we look at a queen: the person or the crown?
Join Maggie Kurkoski ’12 for a Members-only gallery talk on this Cunningham Corridor installation. Bringing together diverse works on paper by Andy Warhol, Marc Chagall, and Albrecht Dürer, this show has captured both media and visitor attention, honing in on widespread fascination with female monarchs, both historical and imaginative. We will also visit the Museum’s Cunningham Study Center to view works on paper not featured in the exhibition.
