Spotlight Tour: Deconstructing Disorientation
On Saturday, Sept. 9's tour, Emily Feng will explore how certain works of art provoke a sense of disorientation. A student of philosophy and economics, Feng will look closely at three works: "Saxon Motif" (1964), an oil painting made in West Germany by Georg Baselitz; Zhan Wang’s "Sculpture in the Form of a Nine-Hole Scholar’s Rock," made in China in 2001; and "The End of the World" (1936), a painting by David Alfaro Siqueiros, which he produced in New York City.
