________FIFTH
ANNUAL ROBERT ROSENBLUM LECTURE
Miriam Basilio: “Ritual and
Spectacle in Franco’s Regime”

Wednesday, April 22, 6:30 pm
In this
lecture, Miriam Basilio, Associate Professor, Art History and Museum Studies,
New York University, considers the art and culture of Spain at the time of
dictator Francisco Franco’s regime. While many are familiar with Pablo Picasso’s
Guernica (1937) and imagery of the Spanish Civil War, the propaganda of
Franco’s regime is still largely unknown. Majestic portraits and posters of the
dictator drew on Spanish baroque painting, modern photography, and contemporary
advertising, while museums and exhibitions were staged as sites of ritual,
spectacle, and national tourism, practices that recall the arts of Fascist Italy
under Benito Mussolini. Followed by a reception.

The Annual Robert
Rosenblum Lecture series honors the wide-ranging career of Rosenblum, former
Guggenheim Swid Curator of 20th-Century Art, and Henry Ittleson, Jr., Professor
of Modern European Art, New York University, whose celebrated work included
projects on Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, Norman Rockwell, Andy Warhol, and the
depiction of dogs in art.

$12, $8 members, free for students with
reservations. For more information, visit guggenheim.org/calendar.

_________TWENTY-SEVENTH
ANNUAL HILLA REBAY LECTURE

Hollis Clayson: “Episodes from the
Visual Culture of Electric Paris”

Tuesday, May 12, 6:30 pm
Hollis
Clayson’s (Professor of Art History and Bergen Evans Professor in the
Humanities, Northwestern University) analysis of the visual culture of the
French capital city takes root in the often overlooked fact that lighting
(éclairage) was a key attribute of the City of Light in the nineteenth
century. Clayson maintains that the forms of artificial illumination, their
visual properties, and the era’s debates about them provided circumstances that
stimulated aesthetically innovative art. In this lecture, Clayson will analyze
the work of John Singer Sargent, Childe Hassam, and Mary Cassatt, and several of
the era’s leading caricaturists.

The Annual Hilla Rebay Lecture brings distinguished scholars to the
Guggenheim Museum to examine significant issues in the theory, criticism, and
history of art.

Free. For more information, visit guggenheim.org/calendar
