Part of The Baker Museum Lecture Series


Gisela Carbonell, Director of Curatorial Affairs, The Baker Museum


Art, like language, can express ideas in a multitude of ways. Inspired by their imagination and influenced by their surroundings, the images and objects artists create reflect personal as well as social circumstances. The lecture discusses this exhibition of approximately 100 works from the museum’s permanent collection and explores the diverse visual languages artists employ to depict specific themes. Focusing broadly on people, places and things, each section addresses themes in more depth, such as mythology; domestic space; the artist’s studio; abstraction; landscape and seascape; the city and industry and the figure.
