Fine Arts Lecture Series (Part 1 of 3): Lecture by Molly Gwinn @ Weymouth Center for the Arts & Humanities
Apr 11 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Fine Arts Lecture Series (Part 1 of 3)

Women Who Challenged the Status Quo Josef and Anni Albers at Black Mountain College

Presented by the Arts Council of Moore County & Weymouth Center for the Arts & Humanities

Before the #MeToo movement or even the 1963 publication of Betty Friedan’s The Feminine Mystique, a number of women artists astonished the art world establishment and public expectations with their talent and grit. These lectures will examine the accomplishments of five notable women who produced paintings and textile art that were every bit as original as the much-heralded art of their male counterparts. Two of the women were married to painters who led the first modern art movement in America, but Lee Krasner Pollock and Elaine de Kooning were undeterred by their husbands’ celebrity and painted radically innovative work throughout their lives. A third, Frida Kahlo, began her career in the shadow of her famous husband, Diego Rivera, but today may be more widely recognized than he for paintings about her own life and Mexican heritage.

Lecture #1 – Thursday, April 11, 2019 at 5:30 PM | Lecturer:  Molly Gwinn

TEAM TEACHING:  Josef & Anni Albers at Black Mountain College

When the Albers arrived at Black Mountain College in 1933, from Nazi Germany, they joined a faculty of avant-garde artists and writers. Josef spoke no English and his wife, Anni, had to translate his lectures to the first class of art students. Josef taught that art wasn’t about creating objects, but about performing experiments with color and materials, often using geometric compositions like the Albers squares that we know so well. Meanwhile, Anni found time to establish a weaving studio, to encourage students to imagine materials as an adventure and to make art from the unlikeliest objects they might find, even at the hardware store.

MOLLY GWINN is an art historian who has presented the spring lecture series in the past and has offered a number of classes with the Center for Creative Living at Sandhills Community College. She earned her doctorate from Rutgers University and has taught at Rutgers, the School of Continuing and Professional Studies at New York University, and at the Dallas Museum of Art.
