Clark Institute Lecture-Perfomance

November 5 at 1pm, 2017
225 South Street, Williamstown, MA

Join friends and family at the Clark for a day of free admission to the galleries, activities, and a special first look at the fall exhibition The Impressionist Line: From Degas to Toulouse-Lautrec. At 1 pm in the auditorium, don’t miss a special performance and lecture with Time Lapse Dance Artistic Director, Jody Sperling, based on the unique style of modern dance pioneer Loïe Fuller (1862-1928), whose performances were inspired by the Impressionists’ quest for modernity and their effort to capture light, color, and movement in their work. Sperling shares a history of Fuller and presents selected dances inspired by her oeuvre. Make sure to visit the print room to see Toulouse-Lautrec’s famous lithograph Miss Loïe Fuller, which depicts the dancer’s signature serpentine dance. Click for full details
