Art History with a Twist: Social Commentary in Western Art


Dec 8, 2019
03:00 PM until 04:00 PM


Artist and art historian Marcy B. Freedman returns to Hudson Valley MOCA to present three lectures that focus upon the ways in which art confronts human behavior.

As a visual artist, Marcy has explored a variety of mediums – from painting and sculpture to photography, video, and performance art. Her works have been shown in more than 300 exhibitions around the country, and she has presented solo performances in a wide range of public and private venues.

Marcy utilizes her background in art history — an undergraduate degree and two master’s degrees — in her public lectures and curatorial projects. Recently, her focus as a curator has been video and performance art.

Marcy B. Freedman will highlight the varied approaches that have been used to explore the nature of war, racism, and gender inequality. Among the artists to be discussed are Goya, Nancy Spero, David Hammons, and the Guerrilla Girls.
