Join us for a live Q&A with Melanie Herzog following a screening of her gallery talk, “Exuberant Body: Gladys Nilsson’s Images of Women,” in which she explores Nilsson’s representations of the female body, shaped by the artist’s keen observation of human behavior, her inimitable sense of humor, the wisdom she has gained through lived experience, and her fantastical imagination.
- 6:30 – 7:00pm: Introduction, video screening of artist talk
- 7:00 – 7:30pm: Live Q&A!
