Harn Eminent Scholar Chair in Art History Lecture
A Paradoxical Queen: Royal Spaces for Marie de’ Medici in Baroque France

Reception to follow 
Nicola Courtright, William McCall Vickery 1957 Professor of the History of Art and Chair of Architectural Studies, Amherst College
Around 1600, French royal residences displayed imagery that surprisingly suggested an authoritative political place for the spouse of King Henri IV. The château of Fontainebleau especially contained artful vocabulary that wittily, yet seriously, illuminated the paradoxical position that a queen occupied in Baroque France.

The environmental crisis has become an urgent and crucial issue in our contemporary world. Many scientists believe we have changed so profoundly that we now occupy a new geological era—the Anthropocene. Kerry Oliver-Smith, Curator of Contemporary Art will discuss the changing relationships between humans and non-humans and the artists’ role as a witness and catalyst of new ways of thinking, seeing and imagining a vital world to come.
