History of Art Research Seminar

Due to illness this event has had to be cancelled

What did it mean for white women to practice as professional artists in Germany in the first few decades of the twentieth century? How was their work shaped by their experiences of modernity and what can we learn today by looking again at familiar themes of modernism through the lens of their historically determined, raced and gendered experiences? In this lecture Professor Dorothy Price, the lead curator for the exhibition, Making Modernism, currently on view at the Royal Academy of Arts, London, will consider these and other questions in a critical account of the gender, making and meaning of modern art in Imperial Germany.
