International Symposium: Curating Goya
Download Full Text
In the words of one recent author, Francisco Goya (1746-1828) is enjoying a “pop-culture moment.” Two large-scale exhibitions devoted to him opened this fall at the Meadows Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and three more will open in Europe next year. With an oeuvre encompassing some 1,800 works, from commissioned portraits to dreamlike fantasies, Goya never ceases to intrigue and surprise viewers. At the same time, his vast and varied output presents particular challenges for its interpretation and display. In a public symposium, curators of recent and upcoming shows on Goya will discuss how different approaches to exhibiting Goya’s work invite new paths for understanding his art.
