Friday’s keynote lecture and Saturday’s symposium programming can be attended together or as stand-alone events. Each day’s programming is ticketed separately to allow for this flexibility. Entry into the exhibition on Friday evening and Saturday is included with the purchase of a ticket to Saturday’s symposium programming.
Tickets are available through MetroTix or at the Information Centers at the Museum. A service fee applies to tickets purchased through MetroTix.
Friday Keynote Lecture
French Landscape at the Margins of Survival
Representations of rural life and its terrain by Barbizon painters often celebrate France as an integral nation, its urban sophistication buttressed by the abiding continuities of the countryside. But one need not search far for motifs showing just how precarious and desperate rural life could be.
This lecture can be attended as a stand-alone event or in conjunction with the Saturday symposium programming. See Symposium Ticketing for details.
