HALSEY TALKS | The Landscape As Art
Monday, September 18, 2017
Halsey Institute Galleries
Why are landscapes so prevalent in art? What is the relationship between landscape and art? From wall drawings in the Lascaux Caves and Chinese ink wash paintings to German Romanticism and American landscape painting, different cultures throughout history have nearly always sought to portray the world around them. But why?
Bryan Granger, Manager of Exhibitions and Public Programs will lead a discussion on the concept of the landscape in art, how artists have approached them, and what it means to paint landscapes today.
Halsey Talks are an ongoing series of roundtable discussions on intriguing concepts in art. While they may take advantage of exhibitions on view at the Halsey Institute, they are open-ended in nature. As a platform for a deeper understanding and discussion of fascinating ideas in art, Halsey talks are open to all.
