In coordination with the special exhibition, “Paula Modersohn-Becker: Ich bin Ich / I am Me,” Neue Galerie New York is delighted to invite teens to a free guided tour as well as to host a lecture series with a focus on various aspects of Paula Modersohn-Becker’s life and work.

“Paula Modersohn Becker: The First Woman Artist”

Diane Radycki, Art Historian, Professor and Gallery Director Emerita, Moravian College

In her lecture, Diane Radycki looks at the “me” Paula Modersohn-Becker struggled to become: at her place in the history of art, including her redefinition of the female nude, and at her ever-growing posthumous reputation. A mere twenty years after a lifetime of no recognition, she became the first European woman artist to be honored with her own museum (1927). In this century she became the earliest woman artist to be displayed in the permanent collection galleries of the Museum of Modern Art (2017).

Date and Time: Thursday, June 27 at 6:30 PM

Location: Neue Galerie New York; 1048 Fifth Avenue; New York, NY 10028
