Sorry for the late notice — the site was down earlier when I tried to post:
Friday, 4/2, 5-7pm
Part Thirteen: RISD Museum’s Curator of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs Jan Howard and Aurea founding members Consuelo Sherba, Chuck Sherba, and Nigel Gore in a conversation about Rilke as muse and mixing art forms.
Jan Howard’s exhibition (organized with independent curator Susan Harris), Pat Steir: Drawing Out of Line, now at the RISD Museum, is a 40-year survey focusing on Steir’s exploration of the vocabulary of drawing. Reflecting on Rilke, Part II, is Aurea’s meditation through music, prose, and poetry, on the work of the poet Rainer Maria Rilke, whom Pat Steir has cited as one inspiration for her work.
On Sunday, April 18, at 3pm, Aurea will present Reflecting on Rilke, Part II at the Museum’s Chace Center, Metcalf Auditorium, as part of the special programs presented by the Museum to underscore topics related to Steir’s drawings; the program is free and open to the public. In addition to relating to Steir’s work, this program will underscore the immense influence of visual artists Rodin and Cezanne on Rilke’s work. Join us for a conversation about how artists are inspired by work in media outside their own, and how they bring those influences and inspirations to their own art. (Note: Part I of Reflecting on Rilke will be presented, also free of charge, at Brown University’s Grant Recital Hall, on Monday, 4/12 (note: 4/12 is rescheduled date, concert was originally scheduled for Wed 4/14) at 8pm.) More on Aurea, more on Pat Steir show.
Free and open to the public!
