AUDITORIUM




Art historian Whitney Chadwick explores the complex relationship between Man Ray and American photographer Lee Miller, who lived and worked together in Paris between 1929 and 1932. As Man Ray's favored model, Miller was transformed into both fashion icon and Surrealist fetish. Chadwick also reads from Exquisite Corpse, her fictional work-in-progress inspired by a Man Ray photograph. Known for her pioneering research and writing on women and Surrealism, her books include Women Artists and the Surrealist Movement; Women, Art, and Society; Significant Others: Creativity and Intimate Partnership; and Framed, an art-historical crime novel.
