Learning from Frida Kahlo: Exploring Identity in Modern and Contemporary Art

Date + Time

Thursday, July 17, 2008
6:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.

Location

UC Berkeley Extension, 95 Third Street, San Francisco

Overview

Taking Kahlo's work as its starting point, this course explores how other artists tackle themes of identity. Charles and Gass position Kahlo within a broader context of art history, using this expanded field as a means of defining the ways in which art reflects and constructs our understanding of ourselves, others, and the world we live in. Themes include the cult of the artist, artistic partnerships, the body, nationalism, portraiture, and Surrealism.
