Exhibition Lecture Series

This exhibition focuses on an overlooked topic within history of art: historically, the female nude and the inherent male gaze have been the centre of much discussion; the male nude is the topic explored by the Musée d’Orsay’s proposal. The works of art displayed represent a variety of media, spanning from 1800 to the present, including works by Cézanne, Gustave Moreau or the contemporary Pierre et Gilles. The male body is usually associated with strength and virility, however, by being represented as an object of desire/gaze, does that render it more vulnerable? What does it mean to offer an aesthetic connotation? We will discuss the varied perspectives documented throughout history analyzing the major works at Musée d’Orsay .

Instructor: Cristina Vremes has a background in History of Art and Philosophy.  She holds a BA from University College London (UCL) and an MPhil from the University of Cambridge.  She has held a number of professional positions including the Saatchi Gallery and the Jeu de Paume Gallery.  She is an independent art writer with an emphasis on Renaissance Art, 17th century Dutch painting and Contemporary Art.
