Heide Fasnacht: Body Talk

  • Rose Art Museum 415 South Street Waltham, MA 02453 United States (map)

Tracing connections from early to recently acquired objects, this presentation is the first in a series to explore the origins and thematic through lines in the Rose Art Museum’s collection. Beginning with the Surrealist-inspired paintings and collages of Joseph Cornell, André Masson, and Max Weber, the gathered works of this iteration focus on the body to evoke the contradictions aroused by and rooted in this typically familiar subject.
