Gallery conversation: “Adornment, Authority, and Alterity in Nineteenth Century Art”
A newly installed selection of works from the Bowdoin College Museum of Art’s collection provides intriguing perspectives on art and culture of the nineteenth century. Laura Sprague, consulting curator of decorative arts, and Joachim Homann, curator, discuss how objects on view, ranging from American paintings and sculpture to selections of European Asian, and tribal art, reflect the diversity of American society and its international relations.
Presented in conjunction with the exhibition, Nineteenth-Century Art and Artifacts at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art.
Free and open to the public.
