Museum Nights: Europe Future Past
October 11, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Visitors may experience art from across Europe, original choreography from UF students and new perspectives on history, culture and war. Tours, discussion, screen-printing and other hands-on activities inspired by WWI propaganda posters and contemporary photographs will challenge and inspire. Museum Nights is an ongoing program made possible by University of Florida Student Government and the Office of the Provost. Additional support provided by the UF Center for European Studies.
Also join in a panel discussion “WWI, Then and Now.” Panelists are: Dexter Filkins and Andrew Nagorski, both award-winning authors and foreign correspondents (The New Yorker, New York Times, Newsweek); Matthew Jacobs, UF Assoc. Professor of History, author of “Imagining the Middle East: The Building of An American Foreign Policy, 1918-1967”; and Rachel Silveri, UF Assistant Professor of Art History, author of “The Art of Living in the Historical Avant-Garde.” They will discuss the enduring legacies of WWI and how the war shaped the world we live in today, moderated by Robert Sanchez, co-curator of the exhibition.
