Two small exhibitions currently on display at the Carleton College Perlman Teaching Museum in the Weitz Center for Creativity connect curricular work in history and French to art objects from around the globe. Both exhibits are on display in the Kaemmer Family Gallery of the Perlman Teaching Museum through November 14, 2012.
“Visualizing Friends and Enemies in the Socialist World” is an extension of a seminar led by David Tompkins, assistant professor of history and director of European studies. The exhibit analyzes socialist propaganda from Russia, China, Cuba, and elsewhere. And under the guidance of Christine Lac, senior lecturer in French, “People, Places, Things: La culture en deçà des clichés” explores the cultural significance of people, places, and things as represented by French and Francophile artists.
Both exhibits will be discussed by student experts in an art talk on Thursday, Nov. 1, from 4:30 to 6 p.m. in the Weitz Center for Creativity Commons.
