Visit to "Masculinities" Exhibit at Nasher Museum

Friday, January 31, 2014 - 2:30pm
Meet in the Student Lounge, Gray Building
Sarah Wilcox (sarah.wilcox@duke.edu)

Two Duke Divinity School student groups, New Creation Arts and the Divinity Women's Center, will co-sponsor a trip by bus for students, faculty, and staff to the "Masculinities: Mainstream to Margins" exhibit at the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University.

The exhibit explores the definition of what it takes to be a "real man." Spanning over 500 years, the works on view complicate people's ideas about gender, biological sex, and the inadequate binary of feminine and masculine. Through time and around the world, the definition of a real man has varied dramatically.

The group will hold a discussion after viewing the exhibit. Snacks will be served.
