Event Description:
The Global Student Certificate Program at the Weissman Center for International Business presents a new series of masterclasses in the arts, A Tour of the World in Six Artworks.

This series of 6 masterclasses by art historians will connect world cultures with the fine arts, to see if we can find an alternate way to become globally-accomplished students. For Baruch students who wish to in order to operate at the highest echelons of business and industry, a working knowledge of art history and culture will be indispensable.

The second event in the series is given by Gail Levin, Baruch Professor of Art History.

“Frida Kahlo’s Two Fridas: Crafting Paintings and Multiple Identities”
Baruch Professor of Art History Gail Levin will speak about the work of Frida Kahlo. In the large-scale double self-portrait, called Two Fridas (1939), Frida Kahlo suggested her dual nature, her multiple ethnic identities. The image on the right is dressed in Tehuana costume, while that on the left wears a European Victorian-style dress. Some of many interpretations argue that the Frida dressed in Mexican outfit, who holds Diego’s portrait, is the one that he loved. This talk also features international homages to this painting by Mongolian and Japanese artists.
