Sightlines Tour: What Her Gaze Contains

Sat, Mar 24 2018 - 1:30pm to 2:15pm
Art Museum, Art Museum Exhibit Hall

Women are often shown as passive in art--they are not shown as actors but rather, as things to be acted upon. Visitors on this tour, led by Simi Esan ’18, Student Guide, will explore the gazes of these supposedly passive figures, and look past their outward depictions. How do materials contribute to our conceptions of the person’s power, standing, and class? What effect does the gender of the artist have on the depictions of the subject? We will consider these questions, and more, as we investigate what the gaze can contain.
