Edward Hopper: A Virtual Lecture (via Zoom)
This first lecture is in partnership with the Edward Hopper House Museum & Study Center as part of RoCA’s new series: The Luminary Artists of Rockland.
Thursday, February 11 at 7:00pm
Tickets: $10 www.rocklandartcenter.org
Using Hopper’s paintings as inspiration, this talk will explore the ways stories are constructed by and for the subjects held in iconic Rockland-raised painter Edward Hopper’s frame. We will also discuss the lives of Marion Hopper (his sister) and Jo Nivison Hopper (his wife, a fellow painter) who kept very detailed journals and logs, asking what it takes for an object to be considered art and how we can explore the possibility for art within our own lives. We will complicate the idea of the domestic and create a fuller picture of the Hopper legacy.
Juliana Roth is an artist currently based in Nyack, NY. She is curious of the possibilities for telling stories across genres. She is most passionate about collaborating with others and likes to apply art and storytelling for transformation, to build community, and as a pathway for creative social change. Currently, she works with Edward Hopper House Museum & Study Center, Rivertown Film Society, and Leftfield Productions to do just that. Sometimes, she acts. Mostly, she writes. She was selected as a 2020 VIDA Fellow with Sundress Publications for her fiction.
