Scroll through to see the results of Professor Charles Flachs’ First-Year Seminar students! #mhcalums : comment below if you remember completing the “luminance” exercise! 🗣#gallerytalk THURSDAY 10/10 at 4:30pm for our new exhibition: “Money Matters: Meaning, Power, and Change in the History of Currency,” curated by Desmond Fitz-Gibbon, Associate Professor of History, and Aaron Miller, Associate Curator of Visual and Material Culture.
Students from the History of Money course: Emily Sheng '22, Ilika Tripathi '22, and Audrey Shannon '22 will offer insights about specific objects in the exhibition, demonstrating how money can reflect systems of political power as well as societal innovation and change. Today was the first of four visits for Professor Charles Flachs’ First-Year Seminar, “Performance Movement and the Art of Photography.” Students looked at 20th c. black and white photographs and discussed methods of suspension, motion blur, and visual representation.
