About the Class
Taught in conjunction with our Marie Cuttoli exhibition, this course surveys the career of the pioneering entrepreneur, who introduced leading modern artists like Picasso, Miró, Léger, and Man Ray to textiles and tapestry. Trace the cultural and political influences on Cuttoli’s work, which include art deco and the fashion of 1920s Paris, the French colonization of Algeria, and the upheavals of World War II.
An associate curator at the Barnes, Kang organized Marie Cuttoli: The Modern Thread from Miró to Man Ray and served as editor and contributing author for the exhibition catalogue. She specializes in 19th- and early-20th-century French art and has taught art history at New York University and Yeshiva University.
