09/15/2019 - Talk on Leonardo da Vinci
In recognition of 2019 as 500 years since the death of Leonardo da Vinci, professor Kevin Petti will deliver a talk entitled Leonardo: Connecting Art and Anatomy. Known for iconic works such as The Last Supper and Mona Lisa, closely examining Leonardo's anatomical sketches in his private papers reveals a new dimension to his genius. Leonardo employed dissection techniques generations ahead of university anatomists, and discovered human structure and function unknown to physicians for centuries. This talk also explores how human dissection influenced the works of other Renaissance Masters such as Michelangelo and Raphael.

09/11/2019 - Talk: Mummies, Marbles and Metals
Mummies, Marbles and Medals: Why the British Museum has a Prints and Drawings Collection" The lecture explores how the British Museum, famous today for its archaeological holdings from the ancient worlds also have one of the world's greatest graphic collections. In examining this largely accidental history, the lecture will also look at how prints and drawings help us understand how artists planned their work, the historical roots of fake news and what connects the world's most valuable baseball card to the birth of advertising in Georgian London. Hugo Chapman has been the Simon Sainsbury Keeper of the Department of Prints and Drawings since 2011, he joined the British Museum as a specialist in Italian drawing in 1995. During his time there he has organized shows on Michelangelo and Italian Renaissance drawings and is currently working on an exhibition about Piranesi.

08/16/2019 - Art Talk on Sor Juana
Noted scholar Gregorio Luke will offer a fully illustrated presentation on the seminal historical figure Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz.

"One of the major attractions of Art and Empire: The Golden Age of Spain is the portrait by Miguel Cabrera of Juana Inés de la Cruz, rarely seen outside of México. Sor Juana has been called the 'first feminist,' the first to defend women from the oppression of men. She is also the first in our hemisphere to defend women's right to knowledge. Gifted with intelligence, grace and beauty, she so passionately sought knowledge, that she asked her mother to dress her as a man so that she could attend the university, which at the time was closed to women. Sor Juana continued her studies independently and was so brilliant, that she caught the attention of the Viceroy. She went to live in the Royal Court of the New Spain and became a sensation for her knowledge and beauty. To pursue a literary career, she became a nun and went on to write numerous plays and exceptionally beautiful poems. Towards the end of her life, she affirmed, that God's greatest gift to humanity was free will, idea that angered the ecclesiastical hierarchy, who silenced her and forced her to relinquish her library. Sor Juana died in obscurity during the great plague in México City, but her work lives on as an inspiration to women and freedom lovers everywhere." - Gregorio Luke

04/26/2019 - Landsick Exhibit by Rizzhel Mae Javier
The New Americans Museum presents Landsick an exhibit that explores the hybridity of culture, complexity of intergenerational relationships and study of bi national families. Through the archiving of family photos, Javier examines the literal and metaphorical impact of distance between first generation Americans and their migrant ancestors. The installation pays tribute to family history, their place of origin and migration home.

Rizzhel Mae Javier is a San Diego based artist. Her work explores the intersection of memory, culture and human connection. Rizzhel uses art to dissect her identity through the research and creation of autobiographical projects. Through sharing her stories, she hopes to encourage viewers to recall and examine their own memories and personal experiences to learn about the impact on their identity and perception of self.
