About This Event
Join experts for a discussion that explores how art can communicate institutional power, position, and agency. Take a close look at photographer Irving Penn’s 1993 portrait of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, made days before she took the oath of office to become the second-ever female justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. Consider both the formal qualities of portraits and their contexts. The program ends with a participatory question-and-answer session.
