About the exhibition:

This exhibition features posters created by both men and women worldwide to celebrate and acknowledge the vital role that all citizens play in protecting and promoting human rights while challenging gender inequality and stereotypes, advancing reproductive and sexual rights, protecting women and girls against brutality, and promoting women’s empowerment, education, and participation in society. The posters argue for the empowerment of women, the achievement of equality between women and men, and the elimination of discrimination against women and girls.

Organized and curated by Elizabeth Resnick, Professor Emerita, Graphic Design, Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Boston. Co-curated by Fairfield University faculty Rachelle Brunn-Bevel, PhD, Elizabeth Hohl, PhD, Johanna Garvey, PhD, and Anna Lawrence, PhD in collaboration with museum staff.

Feb 16 @ 5:30 pm

In honor of the opening of Thinking Small: Dutch Art to Scale, join three distinguished collectors of 17th-century Dutch art, George Abrams and Rose-Marie and Eijk van Otterloo, for a conversation about the uniquely personal experience of collecting and engaging directly with works of art. Selections from the Abrams and the Van Otterloo holdings are featured in Thinking Small, a student-curated exhibition that highlights an intriguing array of objects from the 17th-century Netherlands that were designed to elicit slow, intimate, and contemplative responses on the part of their audiences. Moderated by Marisa Bass, Professor in the History of Art. Generously sponsored by the Martin A. Ryerson Lectureship Fund.

Mellon Postdoctoral Associate in Native American Art and Curation between the Department of the History of Art and the Yale University Art Gallery; Dr. Patricia Marroquin Norby (Purépecha), Associate Curator of Native American Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; and guests for a conversation about the complexities of Indigenous representation in the arts.

YUAG: Hybrid Program, Conversation, Collaboration across Campus: The Making of Crafting Worldviews @ Yale University Art Gallery
Feb 24 @ 3:00 pm

Crafting Worldviews: Art and Science in Europe, 1500–1800 is a multidisciplinary exhibition at the Yale University Art Gallery that examines the inseparable relationship among art, science, and European colonialism from the 16th through the 18th century—an era of voyage, trade, and encounters on a global scale. Join the cocurators, Jessie Park, the Nina and Lee Griggs Assistant Curator of European Art, and Paola Bertucci, Associate Professor in the History of Science and Medicine Program and Curator of the History of Science and Technology Division at the Yale Peabody Museum, for a conversation about the journey they took in developing the project together. Drawn from across collections on Yale’s campus, the works on view are remarkable not just for their exquisite design but also their intricate construction from both locally and globally obtained materials, including brass, ivory, mahogany, and ebony. With nearly 100 objects, Crafting Worldviews illuminates the critical role that art and science have played in shaping Europeans’ understanding of the world and their place within it. Generously sponsored by the Martin A. Ryerson Lectureship Fund.
