Too often those who are quickest or loudest to assert their identity have fastened on a single, supposedly fixed aspect of their nature or background to the detriment of the rest. Whatever the reasons, the work of the artists discussed here demonstrate the error and futility of such ostensibly self-protective measures. Featured artists include: William Wegman, Bruce Nauman, Kerry James Marshall, Maya Lin, Louise Bourgeois.
Spirituality is such a vibrant and integral part of our lives that even our changing times and attitudes have not stifled the powerful partnership of spirituality and art in the modern era. Featured artists include: Beryl Korot, Ann Hamilton, John Feodorov, Shahzia Sikander, James Turrell.

As the Farnsworth exhibition Elegantly Attired shows, nineteenth-century American women of the middle and upper classes dressed in fine fashions in the most up-to-date styles. This clothing shaped their bodies into figures that conformed to ideals of femininity and womanhood. Paintings, prints, and photographs of the period similarly defined these types—the working class woman, the New England woman, the idealized woman and the modern woman.  This talk will examine the wide- ranging visual images and their role in both advancing and challenging such gender stereotypes of the period. Donna Cassidy is Professor of American and New England Studies and Art History at the University of Southern Maine.
