Clark Institute Lecture-Perfomance

“We hired Jody Sperling to do a lecture/demonstration at the Clark for the opening of our show, The Impressionist Line and our own Toulouse Lautrec print, Miss Loie Fuller. Our standards are high and Jody did not disappoint. Her performance filled the house and brought the house down, so to speak! We are still getting visitor comment forms from people who were in the audience, raving about her show. Jody was a pleasure to work with, from beginning to end. She is the consummate professional, knowledgeable, down-to-earth, and extremely talented. Without a doubt, we plan to work with Jody again in the future.” -Ronna Tulgan Ostheimer, Ed.D., Director of Education, The Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute

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
