Congratulations to our good colleagues at the Princeton University Art Museum and Efthymia Rentzou, Assistant Professor of French and Italian, who have mounted the exhibition 1913: The Year of Modernism. Their website has just been launched and can be found here: http://artmuseum.princeton.edu/art/exhibitions/1913-modernism.
The wonderful show includes many works from the Graphic Arts Collection, Rare Books, Marquand Library, and other collections, along with the holdings of the Art Museum. It’s great to see this integration of image and text, so important to the artists and writers of the period.
There will also be an important international conference entitled 1913: The Year of French Modernism (April 19-20, 2013), organized by Princeton University professors Efthymia Rentzou and André Benhaim from the Department of French and Italian. Florent Masse, director of Princeton’s French theater troupe L’Avant Scène will present Guillaume Apollinaire’s 1917 surrealist play Les Mamelles de Tirésias (the Breasts of Tirésias) on April 19.
