Curator Talk: Modern Beauty – Fashion and the Rise of Modern Art

November 14 @ 6:45 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Join Gloria Groom, Curator of European Painting and Sculpture at the Art Institute of Chicago, for an illustrated talk exploring the relationship between fashion and modern art at the end of the 19th century. Groom organized the 2012 blockbuster exhibition Impressionism, Fashion, and Modernity that toured Paris, Chicago, and New York. The New York Times called the exhibition “thrilling” and “groundbreaking.”

Groom’s current exhibition, Manet and Modern Beauty, explores the way Edouard Manet—the quintessential painter of 19th-century Paris—turned to fashion for inspiration in his late career. Manet and Modern Beauty, which opened in Chicago before traveling to Los Angeles, was hailed by The Chicago Tribune as “beautiful and au courant.”

The Howard E. Wooden Lecture series is generously sponsored by the Friends of the Wichita Art Museum Endowment.
