Conversations with … A Curator on Cecily Brown: Death and the Maid

3:00–3:45 P.M.
Free with Museum admission

Ian Alteveer, Aaron I. Fleischman Curator, Department of Modern and Contemporary Art, The Met

Join the exhibition curator for an exploration of works in Cecily Brown: Death and the Maid, which focuses on some fifty paintings, drawings, sketchbooks, and monotypes from across the contemporary artist’s career. The intertwined themes of still life, memento mori, mirroring, and vanitas—symbolic depictions of human vanity or life’s brevity—have propelled Brown’s dynamic and impactful practice for decades.

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Cecily Brown: Death and the Maid.

Free with Museum admission. Note: Space is limited; first come, first served.

Masks are strongly recommended.
