April 13, 2016 – August 8, 2016

11:00 am

See details below for exact dates and times.

Cantor Arts Center, just off Palm Drive, at Museum Way and Lomita Drive Map

Using the Cantor’s extensive collection of photographs, sketches, and decorative objects from fin-de-siècle Vienna, this exhibition explores how male artists manipulated images of women in an attempt to control and define women’s roles and status. During this time, norms about women’s intimate relationships with lovers and friends and the structure of the interior, domestic sphere were greatly shifting. The exhibition presents photographic prints by Heinrich Kühn, numerous sketches by Oskar Kokoschka, decorative works from 1883 Austria, works by Max Kurzwell, and more. Student curator: Stanford undergraduate and Cantor Scholar Alex Zivkovic.

Ongoing every day from April 13, 2016 through August 8, 2016.
11:00 am – 5:00 pm

Open Wed-Mon 11am - 5pm, Thursdays until 8pm; admission is free. CLOSED TUESDAY.
