Revolt, They Said: An Artist Talk and Conversation with Andrea Geyer

May 5, Reception at 4:00 p.m., talk at 5:00 p.m.

Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center

Through work that encompasses text, photography, painting, sculpture, video, and performance, artist Andrea Geyer (b. 1971, Germany) explores the complex politics of time. In works like Revolt, They Said and Constellations (Zora Neale Hurston after Carl Van Vechten)—both currently on view in the Loeb— Geyer focuses on the networks of women who have actively shaped today’s cultural landscape and their visibility (or lack thereof) in contemporary museums.

4:00 p.m.
Reception in the Loeb Atrium
5:00 p.m.
Artist Talk in Taylor Hall 102

This program accompanies the Loeb's current exhibition What Now? (Or Not Yet). The exhibition invites critical reflection: How do collections shift and evolve? In what ways can art help us see the past or shape the future? Works ranging from Matthew Vassar’s initial bequest in 1864 to the Loeb’s most recent loans, gifts, and acquisitions thematize past, present, and future as categories in flux.
