Art History and Appreciation
PAFA's Art History and Appreciation series is designed to increase the public's knowledge and appreciation of the visual arts through a series of lectures around a specific topic.
Spring 2021 | MAKING SPACE: THE MAN-MADE CITY
Spring 2021 | New Myths in Black and Indigenous Art and Film
In this 4-week course, mythologist and multidisciplinary artist Dr. Li Sumpter offers a breakdown of the Heroine’s Journey model evident in aesthetic and archetypal patterns in contemporary art and film narratives. The class will explore the journey through works from Taking Space: Contemporary Women Artists and the Politics of Scale and select films featuring female protagonists of African and indigenous descent inspired by the exhibition.
Important Note: To help accommodate diverse schedules, individual class sessions will be recorded and made available to class participants for a week after each class takes place.
