Jennifer Jolly, Department of Art History, Ithaca College  
Professor Jolly will examine Siqueiros’s application of the principles of dialectical materialism to artistic production, aesthetics, and reception during the 1930s. In particular, Siqueiros’s experiments with linear perspective and anamorphosis allow us to consider a long-debated topic: Under what conditions might works of art affect viewers to political ends? Registration is required. CLICK HERE to register. This program will also be streamed live on the Hood Museum of Art’s Facebook page.
