Speaking Up for Themselves: Positive Messages in Convent Music and Art in Seicento Bologna
Date: Wednesday April 15, 2009, at 3 pm
Location: Museum Lecture Hall, Getty Center
Admission: Free. Reservation required



Responding to misogynistic portrayals of women in several images seen in the exhibition Captured Emotions: Baroque Painting in Bologna, 1575–1725, Craig Monson, professor of music at Washington University in St. Louis, considers how music, painting, and architecture of Bolognese convents were staged to show (at least some) women in an alternative, more positive light. Complements the exhibition Captured Emotions: Baroque Painting in Bologna, 1575–1725.
