BELLOWS AND THE BODY
Barber Institute of Fine Arts
FRIDAY 4 NOVEMBER
9.30am – 4.45pm

This special one-day symposium will gather academics and curators from Europe and the US for a series of conversations exploring how George Bellows and other Ashcan School artists approached the body.  A full day of papers, followed by a round-table discussion, addresses diverse themes including censorship, the significance of the life class and connections to popular illustration and radical magazines.  Join us for lively debate and gain a new insight into Bellows and his Ashcan contemporaries.
There will also be a free evening lecture (see right) taking place on Thursday 3 November. Symposium Attendees, along with general members of the public are more than welcome to attend.
