A Conversation with Nell Painter

Event time: 
Thursday, February 28, 2019 - 4:30pm

How are women, and artists, “seen” and judged by their age, race, and looks? And how does this seeing change, depending upon what is asked of the viewer? In her new memoir, Old in Art School: A Memoir of Starting Over, the best-selling historian and visual artist Nell Painter explores these questions with curiosity, openness, and joy—the joy of embracing creativity, dreams, the importance of hard work, and the stubborn determination of your own value.

Laura Wexler, Professor of American Studies, Film and Media Studies, and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Yale University, will discuss this topic with Painter, Edwards Professor of American History, Emerita, at Princeton University.
