TALK: ArtCurious with Jennifer Dasal

Sunday, 6/23/2019
2:00PM-3:00PM  
Jennifer Dasal, curator and host of ArtCurious Podcast (www.artcuriouspodcast.com), comes to CAM for an afternoon of the unexpected, the slightly odd, and the strangely wonderful in art history. Her independent audio show, ArtCurious, is art history for all, focusing on the offbeat and lesser-known stories in art and asking surprising questions: did Van Gogh commit suicide or was he murdered? Was a British painter actually Jack the Ripper? And how did the CIA covertly support modern art? Join Dasel as she discusses why and how ArtCurious came to be and shares one of her favorite strange stories. Jennifer Dasal is the Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the North Carolina Museum of Art, her research expertise includes contemporary art with a particular interest in women artists and Asian art. Purchase seats on CAM's website, by phone and at CAM's Visitor Services desk. CAM Members and Students with valid ID: $10.00, Non-Members: 15.00. Weyerhaeuser Reception Hall.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
Jennifer Dasal is the curator of modern and contemporary art NCMA, where she has been employed since 2008. Prior to joining the NCMA, she held positions as assistant to the curator of Western art at the Snite Museum, University of Notre Dame, Notre Dame, Indiana, and at the Richard L. Nelson Art Gallery, University of California, Davis. She has additional experience working in commercial art galleries. She holds an MA in art history from the University of Notre Dame as well as a BA in art history from the University of California, Davis. She has also completed PhD coursework in art history at the Pennsylvania State University. Her research expertise includes contemporary art with a particular interest in women artists and Asian art.

On the side, Dasal hosts the ArtCurious Podcast, a bi-weekly show exposing the unexpected, the slightly odd, and the strangely wonderful in art history. ArtCurious is art history for all of us. This isn't like a college lecture, droning on about archaic art terminology (like chiaroscuro or contrapposto) or the importance of linear perspective (um, okay). ArtCurious is about the juicy stuff: did Van Gogh commit suicide or was he murdered? Was a British painter actually Jack the Ripper? And how did the CIA covertly support modern art? ArtCurious is about story first, shining light into unseen corners of art history. And if listeners just happen to learn something along the way, that's just gravy.
