Please register for the FREE Zoom webinar. All registrants will receive an email with the webinar link prior to the event.
New York based multidisciplinary artist Patricia Cronin discusses how Art History has inspired her feminist artistic practice for over 25 years. From Ancient Greek sculpture to 19th Neo-classical sculpture, from intimate watercolors to large assemblage paintings, Cronin’s aesthetic strategy breathes new life into traditional images and forms in time honored artists’ materials by injecting her specific contemporary content into them. This talk will also focus on her exhibition Patricia Cronin, Aphrodite and the Lure of Antiquity, the inaugural Conversations with the Collection series exhibition at the Tampa Museum of Art, including Aphrodite Reimagined, a 21st-century/ancient hybrid, monumental cult statue of the Goddess of Love, Aphrodite, commissioned by the museum. Cronin will discuss how exploring the past will continue to illuminate the present and forge a way forward.
