Members' Exhibition Preview Mothers’ Arms: Käthe Kollwitz’s Women and War
- Thursday, January 28, 2016
- Museum of Art
- 2–3 PM
Join Henriette Kets de Vries, exhibition curator and manager of the Cunningham Center for the Study of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs, for a preview of the new exhibition, Mothers’ Arms: Käthe Kollwitz’s Women and War.
From revolutionaries and breadwinners to widows and mothers in mourning, women feature prominently in the work of the German 20th-century artist Käthe Kollwitz (1867–1945). The exhibition draws upon her biography and places her prints, drawings, and sculptures within a historical context. Excerpts from the artist’s diaries as well as archival film, photographs, and German propaganda materials will provide both a personal insight and a cultural context to the depiction of women in Kollwitz’s time.
Members: $5 | Student Members: FREE. Members may bring up to 2 guests. Space limited.
