The date of this lecture has been rescheduled from Wednesday, April 26 1-2:30pm to Wednesday, May 24 from 2-3:30pm. We apologize for any incovenience. 

Look at the work of Henri Matisse through the interdisciplinary lens of Women’s and Gender Studies. Looking at the work of master artists with such an approach, this lecture suggests how foregrounding the visual intersection of race, class, gender, and sexuality gives us a unique vantage point for viewing Matisse’s representations of the female body.
