Join us for a lecture by Dr. Alla Rosenfeld, Curator of Russian & European Art, in conjunction with the exhibition Home Away from Home: Russian Artists Abroad. Dr. Rosenfeld will present her insights on how the concept of “home” was ever-changing for Russian artists, who fled to Western Europe. She will also trace the complex interconnections and rich influences between Russian and Western artists in the 20th century. Immediately following the lecture, please join us for a reception in the galleries and a viewing of the exhibition.
Join us for a conversation with former colleague and friend of the late Michael Mazur, Betsey Garand, Senior Resident Artist at Amherst College. This talk is in conjunction with the exhibition Perspectives on Michael Mazur.
Free and open to all!
