Location: Tang Teaching Museum
This event is organized by the Art History Department at Skidmore College.
Join us for a talk by Ana-Joel Falcón-Wiebe, Skidmore College Lecturer in Art History and curator of the exhibition Inhabited Landscapes: Bougault’s Algeria.
Inhabited Landscapes focuses on Alexandre Bougault’s late 19th- and early 20th-century panoramic photographs of Algerian landscapes as a platform for a vast array of interactions and as a stage for the enactment of concepts of loss, identity, desire, change, and power in the context of tourism, which frames the creation and circulation of the photographs.
Ana-Joel Falcón-Wiebe earned her PhD in Art History in 2014 from Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario. Her dissertation traces the impact of seventeenth-century Spanish painting in the work of Théodule Augustin Ribot and analyzes the trends in collecting Spanish paintings during the second half of the nineteenth century in France. She has curated exhibitions at the Agnes Etherington Art Gallery (2008), collaborated with the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa for the exhibitions Caravaggio and His Followers in Rome and Drawn to Art: French Artists and Art Lovers in 18th-Century Rome (2010), with the Musée du Louvre in Paris in the publication of Dessins bolonais du XVIIe siècle (2013), with the Brooklyn Museum for the exhibition Impressionism and the Caribbean: Francisco Oller and His Transatlantic World (2015). She has taught at colleges and universities in Canada, France, and the United States. Dr. Falcón-Wiebe is currently working on a publication that delineates the role of Ribot in Fantin-Latour’s Hommage à Delacroix. She is interested in the development of transnational cultural networks and cross-cultural exchange during the nineteenth-century.
This talk is free and open to the public and is organized by the Art History Department at Skidmore College.
