National Theatre Live: Salomé

Oct 22, 2017, 2pm
$15 for Museum Members and students with ID $18 for non-Members   Does not include general admission The story has been told before, but never like this. An occupied desert nation. A radical from the wilderness on hunger strike. A girl whose mysterious dance will change the course of the world. This charged retelling turns the infamous biblical tale on its head, placing the girl we call Salomé at the centre of a revolution. Internationally acclaimed theatre director Yaël Farber (Les Blancs) draws on multiple accounts to create her urgent, hypnotic production on the stage of the National Theatre.  National Theatre Live is a simulcast/telecast and not a live performance at the Museum.

Art Lovers Book Club: The Art of Rivalry by Sebastian Smee

Nov 1, 2017, 1pm Nov 1, 2017, 5:30pm 2 More Engagement(s) Available
The Art of Rivalry by Sebastian Smee A famous portrait of Francis Bacon brazenly stolen off a museum wall. Manet stabbing through an image of his wife painted for him by Degas. Lucian Freud declining a wedding invitation because he found himself “in the unusual position of having been involved sexually not only with the bride but also the groom and the groom’s mother.” Juicy details like these dot a new book by the Pulitzer Prize-winning art critic Sebastian Smee. But Mr. Smee is ultimately after something more subtle — though no less gripping — in “The Art of Rivalry,” a study of the creative tensions embedded in four separate friendships between artists — Manet and Degas, Matisse and Picasso, de Ko...
