History's Shadow AV12Friday, December 2, 2016, 12:30pm-5pm, Peabody Essex Museum, Morse Auditorium.

From the 1793 opening of the Louvre, the world’s first modern museum, to the present day, the art museum has served as a fecund source of inspiration and creativity for generations of artists – from 19th-century copyists to 21st-century conceptual artists. Join us to explore the nuanced and often fraught relationships between artists and museums within the history of American art at this half-day symposium featuring lectures by leading contemporary scholars and visual artists. Speakers include scholars David Dearinger, Andrew McClellan and artists David Maisel, Rosamond Purcell and Elaine Reichek.
