Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor

Australian comedian Hannah Gadsby catapulted to international acclaim with their 2018 comedy special Nanette. In conjunction with the opening of our special exhibition It’s Pablo-matic: Picasso According to Hannah Gadsby, organized on the fiftieth anniversary of Picasso’s death, Gadbsy addresses the iconic painter again—and the long-entrenched myths surrounding the “master” of modernity. Gadsby’s lecture “But Cubism!” is followed by a conversation with Catherine Morris, Sackler Senior Curator, Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, and Lisa Small, Senior Curator, European Art, about cocurating It’s Pablo-matic and the role of feminist critique in ongoing reconsiderations of Picasso’s legacy.
