Talk: The Fragmented Years of Marc Chagall

2 pm | Sat, July 29, 2017
Bing Theater

Susan T. Goodman, senior curator emerita of The Jewish Museum in New York, addresses Marc Chagall's importance in the story of modern art. This presentation will enable us to understand how images and experiences from his early years in Vitebsk, Russia, were perpetuated and provided inspiration for life. His wide-ranging geographical travels and the upheavals caused by seismic historical events will be considered as they framed and determined his artistic output.

Goodman's fields of expertise include Russian art as well as Israeli art, and she has organized numerous exhibitions. One of her most recent projects was an exhibition focusing on Chagall during the war years, which was presented in New York in 2013–14.
