Dive deep into the art history of the Passport to Paris exhibitions in this four-part lecture style course. In the first session, art historian Giulia Bernardini explores the world of the French Academy and salon society of the 18th and 19th centuries. Next, DAM master teacher Molly Medakovich discusses Paris as a center of art and culture in the 18th and 19th centuries, showing how the modernization of the medieval city impacted both life and art. In the following session, M.E. Warlick looks at works in the exhibitions through lenses of class and gender across time. The last session will feature a discussion between DAM Associate Curator of Painting and Sculpture Angelica Daneo and Scott O’Neil, Resident Conductor for the Colorado Symphony. The pair will discuss the artistic and musical collaboration between the DAM and the Colorado Symphony during Passport to Paris and how music and the visual arts responded to the same profound changes in history and culture from the 1600s to the early 1900s.
