By Alessandra Comini, University Distinguished Professor of Art History Emerita, SMU

Dr. Comini discusses in word and imagery how, after a life spent tracking down artists and artworks and conveying the cultural content of artistic form to her beloved SMU students, she continued publishing books, but took to combining fact with fiction in the pseudonymous form of the Megan Crespi Series of Art History Murder Mystery novels. A wine and cheese reception follows in the Gene and Jerry Jones Great Hall.

Meadows Museum Lecture: “Velázquez, Curator to the King”

When: 
Thursday, March 2, 2017 - 6:00pm - 7:00pm

Julia Vazquez, Meadows/Kress/Prado curatorial fellow and PhD candidate, Columbia University This lecture carefully examines the means by which Diego Velázquez came to serve as curator of the art collection of Habsburg king Philip IV and the impact on his career as painter to the king. The talk will first examine Velázquez’s redecoration of the Hall of Mirrors in the Alcázar palace, and then offer a new interpretation of his Mercury and Argus that demonstrates the ways its intended inclusion in this decorative program determined its form and content.

Meadows Museum Lecture: “Rafael Barradas and the Development of the Spanish Avant-Garde”

When: 
Thursday, January 19, 2017 - 6:00pm

Jed Morse, Chief Curator, Nasher Sculpture Center

Uruguayan artist Rafael Barradas spent time in Barcelona and Madrid in the second decade of the 20th century and developed his own formal language influenced by Cubism and Futurism that he termed Vibracionismo (Vibrationism). Barradas’s theories would prove influential for artists such as Joan Miró, Salvador Dalí, Celso Lagar and fellow Uruguayan Joaquin Torres-García, and lay the groundwork for the Spanish literary movement, Ultraism.
