From Matisse to Essaydi: The Odalisque in Art History at Weatherspoon Art Musuem

Thu, May 23, 2024
WAM Dillard Room, first floor
Weatherspoon Art Museum

Join WAM assistant curator Hannah Southern in conversation about the character type of the odalisque in the Weatherspoon’s collection. We will examine the odalisque in Orientalist art and explore how contemporary women artists, including Lalla Essaydi (2024 Falk Visiting Artist), grapple with this persisting stereotype in their artwork.
