Fanchon Jean Silberstein - Art Insight: Understanding Art and Why It Matters

Upcoming Event
Sunday, January 26, 2020 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

In this innovative guide to experiencing art, Silberstein, a writer, teacher, and trainer who served as director of the U.S. Department of State Overseas Briefing Center and was a Hirshhorn docent for more than thirty years, shows that looking at pictures or sculptures is only the beginning: to get the most out of a masterpiece, we need to engage with the artist and the artist’s world. Organizing her refreshing primer by ideas rather than by chronology, history, or cultures, she presents a series of dialogues that imagine interactions between paintings, often works created many years and miles apart. By emphasizing the relationship between object and viewer, she allows readers to discover meaning in their own ways.
