Event Description

The CU Art Museum and the Art History Program, University of Colorado at Boulder present an annual lecture series:

Critical Positions:
Perspectives on Art History, Curatorial Practice, and Art Criticism


Griselda Pollock, Professor of Social & Critical Histories of Art at the University of Leeds, will give a presentation entitled "Raphael after the Holocaust: Aesthetics and the Maternal in the Face of History and Contemporary Violence." The Lecture will take place Friday, March 15 in Humanities Rm. 150 at 6 pm and is preceded by a reception in the Humanities Living Room from 5 - 6 pm.

Reconsidering three texts linking Raphael's Sistine Madonna and the post-Shoah human condition, Professor Pollock's lecture will explore the contribution of specifically feminist analyses of art, history and contemporary violence to these massive questions.  The lecture will bring together her research into concentrationary memory,  trauma, representation and the Holocaust, contemporary post-conceptual  painting, and feminist-psychoanalytical aesthetics in relation to art history, art criticism and curatorial practice.
