Armchair Travels: Museums in Paris "Behind the Scenes" from Impressionism to Contemporary Art (4 Week Course)
In these richly illustrated lectures Dr. Anna Tahinci will offer virtual artistic journeys to Paris, its arts scenes and museums and will be sharing her expertise in Art History and Museum Studies. By studying a curated selection of well-known Parisian museums (the Musée d’Orsay, the Orangerie, the Centre Georges Pompidou, the Musée Picasso), “hidden gems” (the two Musées Rodin in Paris and Meudon, the Musée Bourdelle, the Musée Zadkine), and private foundations (the Fondation Cartier and the Fondation Louis Vuitton), we will analyze architecture, painting, sculpture, decorative arts, and photography, and we will trace the history and culture of France in Paris. These lectures will also address the historical, financial, administrative, and political challenges Parisian museums are facing in the 21st century: globalization and export of French art and culture, the necessity of being profitable due to less governmental support, Relational Aesthetics and the requirements for introducing contemporary art in the context of a rich cultural heritage.
