Race, Gender, and Intermedia Art Practice in Paris c. 1900 (session 2)

Venue: Online

No booking required

'Race, Gender and Intermedia Art Practice in Transnational Paris, c. 1900'
What were the opportunities and limitations in late nineteenth-century Paris for artists (broadly defined) who were not white and male?

This pair of events brings together research presentations and roundtable discussion in response to passages from art historian Emily C. Burns’s book-in-progress, Performing Innocence: Cultural Belatedness and U.S. Art in Fin-de-Siècle Paris. Burns analyzes how the encounters in the French capital reshaped American culture, fuelled by the idea that the US had no culture, no history, and no tradition. The sections were pre-circulated to participants and will be briefly summarized at the start of the Feb 26 event.
