Francesca Bacci : Master Series
November 8 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm Donation
Please join us for a master lecture by Francesca Bacci on the current exhibition of Women are Beautiful by street photographer Garry Winogrand (1928-1984). Famous for photographing the streets of New York at a time of big social changes as well as regular life in the United States. His work and approach were controversial in the 60’s and 70’s, perhaps even more so in our current times.
Francesca Bacci is an inter-disciplinary curator and scholar specializing in museum and visual studies and the history of modern and contemporary art. As a Fulbright fellow, Bacci earned a Ph.D. and a Curatorial Certificate from Rutgers University (New Brunswick, NJ, 2004). She is currently Associate Professor and Head of the B.A. in Museum Studies at the Department of Art + Design, University of Tampa, FL, where she also serves as Chief Curator of University Galleries and Chair of the Exhibition Committee. Her scholarly contributions include the acclaimed volume “Art and the Senses” (Oxford University Press, 2011 and 2013). She is currently completing two book projects: “The Body at the Museum,” on multisensory engagement in exhibition practices, and “The Art of Misogyny,” a history of misogyny in Modern and Contemporary Art.
