“Should Gauguin Be Canceled?”

Thursday, June 30, 2022

6:30-7:30 PM

How much do we want to admire Paul Gauguin? His attempt to escape civilization led him to abandon his family and ultimately to live in Tahiti, where he amassed a collection of child-mistresses, many of whom were also his models. Can we separate his paintings from his person?

Join us for our “Art History Illustrated” talk series, held the third* Thursday of every month at 6:30 p.m. This monthly illustrated talk series is presented by art historian Brenda Edgar, in collaboration with the Carnegie Center for Art and History.

*This program will be held on the fifth Thursday.
