Antique Genius and Dramatic Romantics: Drawing, Color, and Modern Painting

Instructor: Michael Rossman, MFA
In 19th-century France, artists were challenged to choose between two schools of thought. Some maintained an allegiance to drawing and the academic training of the École des Beaux-Arts, while others pursued emerging theories about color and new pigments. Focusing on David, Corot, and Manet, this workshop examines the evolution of modern painting from the tensions between old and new.

First Friday! Carnaval

Bem-vindos! We’re heating up February’s First Friday Carnaval-style with samba dancers and capoeira performers. Feel the energy of Brazil through live performances merging dance, rhythm, and martial arts. Unwind with cocktails and after-hours access to the collection. Johanna Halford-MacLeod, director of publications, gives an eye-opening short talk on the relationship of African works to the objects around them in a favorite ensemble. In partnership with Brazilian Day Philadelphia.

Program

6–7 pm Xande Cruz and PhillyBloco Performance
With a sound as rich and diverse as his native São Paulo, Xande Cruz adeptly blends urban and traditional rhythms in a soulful way like none other. PhillyBloco is modeled after the blocos of Rio de Janeiro, Carnaval bands with large percussion sections made up of 12 drummers. The performance explores the tremendous range of Brazilian rhythms.

7–7:30 pm African collection talk

7:30–8:30 pm Philly Bloco and capoeira performance
Capoeira was born out of the struggle for freedom. African slaves brought it to Brazil in the 16th century and cleverly disguised this powerful form of self-defense as a harmless dance. To hide their fighting spirit from their masters, the earliest capoeiristas combined playful, graceful dance and acrobatic movements with deadly kicks. While training, they avoided injuries by keeping direct physical contact to a minimum. Songs, percussion instruments, and clapping completed the ritual. For the master, capoeira was merely entertainment; for the slave, it was a fight for liberation.

Cocktails and light fare available for purchase.
Featured dish: Feijoada. Afro-Brazilian stew of black eye peas, beef, okra and kale served over orange scented rice.

On Top of the Mountain: Sonia Sanchez and Ja Jahannes with Evie Shockley

In the 1920s, Albert Barnes built an important collection of African art and used it to promote a progressive platform of educational and social reform with the notion that these objects would inspire contemporary black artists and writers. Poets Sonia Sanchez, former Laura Carnell Professor of English and Women’s Studies at Temple University and Philadelphia’s first poet laureate, and Ja Jahannes, author of TruthFeasting and editor of Black Gold: An Anthology of Black Poetry, read from their work and discuss their inspiration in African art. Evie Shockley, associate professor of English at Rutgers University, will moderate.
