Lectures & Artist Talks

NORMA MORGAN LECTURE

Treasures of Centuries: The Diniacopoulos Family Collection
with Dr. Clarence Epstein

Thursday September 27 at 7 pm

Vincent and Olga Diniacopoulos arrived here in the 1950s from war-torn Europe. They brought with them thousands of unique objects spanning more than four millennia of civilization. Dispersed several years ago to museums, universities, and collections across the world, join us for the fascinating story of one of Canada’s greatest private holdings of art and antiquities and the extraordinary Montrealers who assembled them.

ART AND IDEAS

The Poetry of Comics

with Julian Peters
Wednesday October 10 at 7 pm

Comics and poetry have traditionally sat on opposite ends of the spectrum of cultural prestige, but these two art forms actually share a surprising number of common elements. Join comics artist and comics scholar Julian Peters for an overview of past and present graphic and literary experimentation aimed at bringing comics and poetry together in intriguing and affecting ways.
