In Conversation: Breaching Artistic Barriers: Artists in Dialogue in Victors For Art: Michigan’s Alumni Collectors—Part I: Figuration

This program is free and open to the public, but space is limited. Please register to secure your place by emailing umma-program-registration@umich.edu. Please include date and title of program in the subject line of your email.

Victors For Art: Michigan’s Alumni Collectors—Part I: Figuration encompasses works of art representing various artistic styles, historical contexts, temporal periods, and geographical spheres.  Go behind the scenes with Lehti Mairike Keelmann, UMMA’s Assistant Curator of Western Art, to discover how artists such as Alfred Sisley, Tom Friedman, Jean-Baptiste Greuze, Jan Saenredam, Andy Warhol, and Elisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun, among others, interpret and challenge established categories of art and subject matter through their choice of technique and social commentary. Keelmann will also discuss how curators approached the installation and layout of these disparate works. 

Lead support for Victors for Art: Michigan's Alumni Collectors is provided by the University of Michigan Office of the Provost, Michigan Medicine, the University of Michigan Office of the President, the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs and the National Endowment for the Arts, and the University of Michigan Bicentennial Office.
