Chaim Soutine: The Outsider as Insider


Wednesday, May 30, 2018
6 – 7:30 pm
Scheuer Auditorium

James L. Weinberg Distinguished Lecture

Kenneth E. Silver, Professor of Art History, New York University, discusses Soutine’s dual role as both radical innovator and conservative practitioner, a fluctuating identity dependent on the critical needs and prejudices of the interwar Parisian art world in conjunction with Chaim Soutine: Flesh.  

Silver has been the recipient of a National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowship and an American Council of Learned Societies Grant. He has also been a Getty Research Institute Visiting Scholar and a Mellon-Getty Fellow at the Phillips Collection. Silver is a Contributing Editor of Art in America and is Adjunct Curator of Art at the Bruce Museum, Greenwich, Connecticut.

The James L. Weinberg Distinguished Lecture is made possible by the Marshall M. Weinberg Fund, with additional support from Marshall M. Weinberg.

Tickets: $18 General; $15 Students and Seniors; $12 Jewish Museum Members
Includes Museum Admission and private exhibition viewing 5 – 8 pm.
