The Baker Museum Lecture Series
Jennifer Dasal, host of ArtCurious, curator of modern and contemporary art at the North Carolina Museum of Art, Raleigh, North Carolina
The exhibition Subject Matters: Selections from the Permanent Collection was organized with an non-traditional approach to the art historical canon, combining artists of various eras, nationalities and styles in a thought-provoking and unconventional installation.
Guest lecturer Jennifer Dasal is no stranger to unexpected approaches to art history, believing that the real gems lie in the stories, especially the ones that never get told. Dasal is a teller of art historical stories that will shock and entertain, make you question what you thought you knew, and introduce you to unknown characters and hidden histories, conspiracy theories, scandal, and intrigue. Since 2016, Jennifer Dasal has been wowing listeners with her wildly entertaining podcast, ArtCurious, where she delves into the weird and wonderful stories behind the world’s greatest artists and artworks. Dasal, who is also the curator of modern and contemporary art at the North Carolina Museum of Art, tackles her subjects with humor, an engaging style and thorough research.
This presentation is part of the exhibition Subject Matters: Selections from the Permanent Collection.
