MMoCA: Live Q&A with Melanie Herzog

October 23, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Gladys Nilsson’s images of women are playful, tantalizing, spirited, and audacious. Join us for a live Q&A with Melanie Herzog following a screening of her gallery talk on Nilsson’s representations of the female body, shaped by the artist’s keen observation of human behavior, her inimitable sense of humor, the wisdom she has gained through lived experience, and her fantastical imagination.
Melanie Herzog is Professor Emerita of Art History at Edgewood College. Her areas of expertise include North American art and visual culture, with an emphasis on race, ethnicity, gender and representation, and cross-cultural exchanges among artists.
