Categories: College of Fine Arts
The University of New Mexico Art Museum presents the lecture "Honore Daumier: Political Satire, the Legislative Assembly and the Campaign Against the Citizen King," with Josie Lopez on Tuesday, Nov. 15 at 5:30 p.m. in the museum's main gallery. Lopez is a 2009 Jacob K. Javits fellow at the University of California, Berkeley and is currently writing her dissertation on 19th century satirical prints.
The talk focuses on Daumier's lithograph by comparing it with other art mediums at the time and how they all relate to Charles Philipon's oppositional campaign against Louis-Philippe in the mid 1830's. In addition, Lopez will explain the correspondence between Walter Benjamin and Theodore Adorno's examination of Daumier's depiction of the bourgeoisie.
The lecture is part of the Distinguished Speaker Series and is free and open to the public.
