The Contemporaries are invited to a special evening with the conceptual artist Annette Lemieux. Recipient of the MFA’s 2017 Maud Morgan Prize, Lemieux’s special solo exhibition entitled “Annette Lemieux: Mis en Scene” includes work inspired by or directly quoting classic films including To Kill a Mockingbird (1962), The Great Dictator (1940), Fahrenheit 451 (1966), and M (1931).

We will enjoy a private reception and in-gallery discussion with the artist to explore the issues broached by these classic motion pictures—including repression, censorship, racism and classism—and how they continue to resonate in today’s political climate.

6:30–7:30 pm: Reception with Annette Lemieux

7–7:30 pm: Artist Presentation

7:30–8 pm: Discussion in the exhibition (Richard and Nancy Lubin Gallery 263)

Attendees are welcome to enter through the State Street Fenway entrance. Please RSVP by September 27, 2017.
