Critique and Conversation: The Aesthetics of Flesh

Join the museum the last Friday of every month for informal and in-depth discussions about art and ideas.

Flesh has been a dominant feature in Catholic visual culture since the Medieval period. Through the art of contemporary artist, Victoria Reynolds, we will analyze how this theme relates to the imagery presented in the Barrick's new exhibition "Private/Public: Images of Devotion from 19th and early 20th Century Mexico" curated by Emmanuel Ortega in the Michael C. and Mannetta Braunstein Gallery.

Co-hosted by Emmanuel Ortega (PhD candidate in Ibero-American Colonial Art History from the University of New Mexico, UNLV Art History Instructor), Alisha Kerlin (Barrick Collection Manager) and DK Sole (Barrick Content Specialist)
