November 1 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Light in Buffalo:  When Foucault Kept Manet in Mind Michel Foucault’s view of Manet’s Bar at the Folies-Bergère provided the conceptual center for his lecture at the Albright-Knox Gallery in Buffalo in the spring of 1970, the first year he taught at SUNY Buffalo.  His thinking did not stop at the picture frame that year, or any other year, and the ways in which the work of art occupied his mind bears re-examination.  Foucault did not flatten his thinking when…
