"Art in Focus: Women From the Center"
Join us for an online conversation with student guides as they discuss the exhibition "Art in Focus: Women From the Center." Participants include Emma Gray, SY '21; Sunnie Liu, JE '21; Annie Roberts, SY '21; Christina Robertson, SM '22; and Olivia Thomas, MC '20.
This exhibition celebrates women artists in the collection of the Yale Center for British Art. Inspired by Yale University's celebration of fifty years of coeducation in Yale graduate programs, the exhibition highlights women artists whose inventive art practices have enabled them to stake out space in the art world.
"Art in Focus" is the annual exhibition curated by members of the Center's Student Guide Program. The exhibition introduces Yale undergraduates to museology by providing them with curatorial experience. The student curators for this exhibition are Emma Gray, SY '21; Sunnie Liu, JE '21; Annie Roberts, SY '21; Christina Robertson, SM '22; and Olivia Thomas, MC '20. The students have been led by Linda Friedlaender, Head of Education; Jennifer Reynolds-Kaye, former Educator, School and Community Outreach; and Rachel Stratton, former Postdoctoral Research Associate.
The exhibition and accompanying online presentation are generously supported by the Marlene Burston Fund and the Dr. Carolyn M. Kaelin Memorial Fund.
