False Friends: Art History and Labor Studies with Dr. Brett M. Van Hoesen

Friday February 28

12:00 PM  –  1:00 PM

Art History and Labor Studies are often considered false friends, two fields that investigate very different subjects. Yet, there’s a long history of art that represents labor and working conditions. This talk will focus on the intersection of art and labor in painting, photography, and sculpture of the 20th century with a focus on the E. L. Wiegand Collection at the Nevada Museum of Art.

Dr. Brett Van Hoesen is Associate Professor of Art History at the University of Nevada, Reno.

The Art Bite lecture series is supported by Nevada Humanities with additional sponsorship and free admission for students supported by the Core Humanities Program at the University of Nevada, Reno.
