What Is a Personage?
Friday, August 23, 2013, 11:30 a.m.
The Nelson A. Rockefeller Painting and Sculpture Gallery, Gallery 15, fourth floor
By looking at sculptures by Louise Bourgeois and paintings by Mark Rothko and Jackson Pollock, explore the boundaries between abstraction and figuration, and the role of Surrealism in American art around 1945. Then, make your own personage creations.
Gallery Sessions, impromptu interactions facilitated by Museum educators that explore the creative process, art history, and the experience of art, take place daily in select galleries. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free with Museum admission. No registration is required.
Sign language–interpreted Gallery Sessions are held every fourth Sunday of the month at 1:30 p.m. FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
