Connecting Disciplines: Phantom Bodies: The Human Aura in Art

6:30 p.m.
Meet at exhibition entrance
Gallery admission required; members free

In conjunction with Phantom Bodies: The Human Aura in Art, the Frist Center is proud to present Connecting Disciplines, in-gallery conversations that explore key exhibition themes. Phantom Bodies features contemporary artists exploring the absent or transformed body and how this often connects to emotion and to universal experiences. Join Dr. Koepnick, Gertrude Conaway Vanderbilt Professor of German, Cinema and Media Arts at Vanderbilt University, and Chief Curator Scala as they discuss the role of media and technology in both capturing and producing aura.
