Artist’s Talk: Victorious Secret: Elite Olympic Champions as Dancing Bikini Girls

Victorious-Secret-image-300x272From Library Assistant Jennifer Hadley:

Please join us for the opening of Victorious Secret: Elite Olympic Champions as Dancing Bikini Girls by Angela S. Lorenz. This series of three mosaic triptychs is based on the famous mosaics on the floor of an ancient Roman villa in Piazza Armerina, Sicily, from 300 AD. The mosaics are often interpreted as “dancing bikini girls,” but Angela Lorenz reclaims them as the elite athletes they really were.

At the open house following the artist’s talk, more than twenty of Lorenz’s artist’s books will be on display. Victorious Secret commemorates the 40th anniversary of Title IX.

Victorious Secret is on display in the lobby of Olin Library through the end of the semester.

Sponsored by the Friends of Wesleyan Library, the Office of Equity & Inclusion, the Athletics Department, and Special Collections & Archives.

Date: Wednesday, November 19
Time: 4:15-6 PM
Place: Smith ReadingRoom, 1st floor Olin Library
