Impressions of a Fragile Nature by BERNICE SORGE
When: October 29 to November 22, 2015
Vernissage: Sunday November 1st, from 2 to 5 pm
Where: 150, rue St-Patrick, Ottawa
“Bernice Sorge’s art becomes an assemblage based in life, that draws on life…where the human and the natural, extend outwards, from form to image and back again, and a bridge between art and life, and past and present, exists in her art.” (Grande, 2008)Read full...
“Toulouse Lautrec’S Brothel Images – Under the Covers” by Dr. Mary Hunter (Women's Art Society of Montreal)
Tue 27 Oct, 2015
End Date: Tue 27 Oct, 2015
Dr. Mary Hunter, an Associate Professor of Art History and Communication Studies at McGill University, will discuss Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec’s painting of Rue des Moulins, 1894 (1894). She will explore the troubled ties between bodily and painterly surfaces, medical penetration and artistic encounters, as well as the tensions between the ‘slow time’ of waiting and the desire for speed and efficiency in modern medical life. She interprets that Lautrec’s painting invokes a gaze that hovers between the aesthetic and diagnostic as we read the painting for, and as, symptom(s).
This event will be held in the Bombardier Theatre of the McCord Museum (690 Sherbrooke West, Montreal) at 1:30pm, and is free for both members and non-members of the Women’s Art Society of Montreal. Visit the website www.womensartsociety.com for more information.
