Coffee with the Curator

Marie Laurencin: Sapphic Paris
Saturday, June 1
11:00 AM–12:00 PM
In-person, CMA Auditorium

Marie Laurencin (1883–1956) created a unique pictorial world that placed women at the center of modern art. With a highly original painting style that defied categorization, she moved seamlessly between the male-dominated cubist avant-garde, lesbian literary and artistic circles, and the realms of fashion, ballet, and decorative arts.

In this presentation, Daniel Marcus, CMA’s Curator of Collections and Exhibitions, will provide an in-depth overview of Laurencin’s career, from her self portraits to her collaborative decorative projects; from her early cubist paintings to her signature work – feminine and discreetly queer – that defined 1920s Paris.

This unique program is a benefit for Ambassador Circle Members at the Supporter level ($250) and above.

Thank you for your generosity!
