Why We Need Artemisia

May 6, 2020
7:00 pm


Norwich Congregational Church, United Church of Christ

Who was Artemisia Gentileschi, and why does she elicit such a wide range of critical responses? As a female artist working in 17th-century Rome, Artemisia was already exceptional. But as Middlebury professor Katy Smith Abbott explains, it is Artemisia’s personal history with violence and misogyny, and her exploration of these themes in paint, that resonates most deeply with contemporary audiences.
