Lecture: “The Female Secession: Women, Art and the Decorative in Vienna”

October 21, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join Dr. Megan Brandow-Faller for her lecture on "The Female Secession: Women, Art and the Decorative in Vienna."

The Vienna Secession was an art movement formed in 1897 by a group of Austrian artists who had resigned from the Association of Austrian Artists. The first president of the Secession was Gustav Klimt.

Megan Brandow-Faller (Ph.D., Georgetown University), associate professor of history at the City University of New York Kingsborough, works on art and design in Secessionist and interwar Vienna. Recent publications deal with Secessionist artistic toys, Viennese expressionist ceramics, and women’s art institutions and education. She is the editor of "Childhood by Design: Toys and the Material Culture of Childhood, 1500-present" (New York: Bloomsbury, 2018) and the author of "The Female Secession: Reclaiming 'Women's Art' and the Decorative at the Viennese Women's Academy, 1897-1938" (University Park, Pa.: Penn State University Press, forthcoming).
