      Conversation with Susana Martinez-Conde

      225 South Street, Williamstown MA 01267

      Many years before scientists began studying neuronal properties, artists devised techniques to trick viewers’ brains into believing that flat canvases had depth and that sequences of brushstrokes represented the real world. Centuries later, factors such as brightness, color, shading, and eye movements still powerfully affect what we see. The work of neuroscientist Susana Martinez-Conde explores gaze, perception, and the brain’s powers of observation, with an emphasis on perceptual insights developed by Rubens and other Old Masters. $10; free for members, students, and Williams College Staff. 4pm – 5:30pm.

      Violence in the Air: Painting for King Philip IV’s Hunting Lodge

      Clark Art Institute

      225 South Street, Williamstown MA 01267

      Between 1636 and 1638 Rubens designed over sixty paintings of mythological subjects for the Torre de la Parada, the Royal Hunting Lodge outside of Madrid. The artist seems to have been given free rein in choosing the subjects, most of which he drew from the Metamorphoses by the ancient Roman poet, Ovid. In this lecture Margaret D. Carroll, Professor of Art at Wellesley College, argues that Rubens conceived of a number of these paintings as pairs—like the Rape of Hippodamia and the Marriage of Peleus and Thetis in the present exhibition—that served to provoke dialectical reflection on such themes as passion and restraint, order and chaos, chance and reason, and violence and tranquility.

      Lecture: Stephanie Porras, Maerten De Vos

      Clark Art Institute

      Maerten de Vos was a sixteenth-century Flemish artist who worked in Italy, a double convert (to Lutheranism before returning to Catholicism), and an export artist whose work could be found across europe, South-East Asia, and the Americas by the time of his death. As a figure “in-between” he is largely absent from Renaissance art history. This lecture questions his lacuna and de Vos’s place within the so-called global Renaissance. 5:30pm – 6:30pm.

      Clark Conversation: Art After Democracy

      Clark Art Institute

      225 South Street, Williamstown MA 01267

      Join six senior scholars and artists for the Clark conversation, “Art After Democracy.” This informal gathering centers loosely on post-1989 art to consider the place of critical politics under neoliberalism’s defamiliarization and spectacularization of democracy. Scheduled near the eve of the United States presidential election, the conversation is meant to both reflect and provoke. 5:30pm – 6:30pm.
