Visual arts next in community dialogue series

Coastal Carolina University professor Elizabeth Howie will give a talk on "Picasso's 'Demoiselles d'Avignon': Prostitution and Representation in Modern Art" on Wednesday, Feb. 11 at 7 p.m. at the University's Waccamaw Higher Education Center in Litchfield. The discussion is free and open to the public.

This is the second of eight sessions in the University's "Creativity and Conflict" dialogue series, sponsored annually by the Board of Visitors of the Thomas W. and Robin W. Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts.

Howie, an assistant professor of art history, will lead a discussion on the groundbreaking practices of utilizing images of prostitutes in early modernist paintings and the Cubist movement. The discussion will be bracketed around Pablo Picasso's "Demoiselles d'Avignon" of 1907 and Edouard Manet's "Olympia" of 1865.

Howie joined the University faculty in 2008. She earned a Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill and a MFA in ceramic sculpture from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge. Her research interests include work on photography and melancholy, colonial photography, and visual representations of prostitution.
