Work Of Pioneering Czech Modernist Will Be Subject Of Talk At U.Va.

February 5, 2001 -- Patricia Leighten, professor of art history at Duke University and a leading scholar of late 19th century and early 20th century art and culture, will speak on "Gender, Politics and the Art of Frantisek Kupka," on Thursday, Feb. 15, in Campbell Hall Room 160. The 5:30 p.m. talk will be followed by a reception in Fayerweather Gallery.

Kupka, a Czech symbolist and modernist, who worked in Paris, was among the pioneers of abstract art and one of the first completely nonrepresentational artists.

Leighten’s research focuses on the relationship between visual culture and both the politics of representation and the politics of interpretation. She is the author of "Re-Ordering the Universe: Picasso and Anarchism, 1897-1914," "Art, Anarchism and Audience in Avant-Guerre Paris" and (with Mark Antliff) "Cubism and Culture."
