The Visual Arts & the Opposites
Taught by Marcia Rackow
Looking at the art of the world in museums and galleries here and abroad — from the tomb sculptures of ancient China to the latest work in Chelsea — we study how beauty in all art is a oneness of opposites. The classes are based on Eli Siegel’s lectures and essays, including “Art as Flexibility,” “Art as Energy,” “The Drama of Hardness and Softness in Painting.” Once each semester there is a joint Art and Anthropology class.
Alternate Sundays, 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM Eastern Time (USA)
Spring-Summer 2023 classes via video conference are now in session.
