In the second ReOrientations IDEA Cabaret, Tip Ragan, Professor of History joins Gale Murray, Professor of Art History and featured exhibition catalog essayist, in a lively discussion of the ways in which 19th century artists shaped the Romantic and exotic perceptions of the “Orient” for Western viewers. Free and open to the public.
IDEA Cabaret is an ongoing series of public talks featuring conversations between artists, visiting scholars, and Colorado College faculty from diverse backgrounds and areas of expertise. Less structured than formal lectures, IDEA Cabaret presentations aim to replicate the feeling of a good dinner party wherein interesting, lively guests respond to artwork and each other in spontaneous ways. Audience participation is encouraged!
