DESCRIPTION:
The USC Fisher Museum of Art in collaboration with the Mexican Consulate of Los Angeles and Art Division, a non-profit organization dedicated to training and supporting underserved young adults who are committed to studying visual arts, will present MONTARlaBestia. The exhibition is an interdisciplinary exploration that responds to “La Bestia”—a train that carries as many as half a million Central American immigrants annually to the United States. The project was created by artists Demián Flores and Marco Barrera Bassols and will include art and poetry by Art Division students and the artist collective El Colectivo Artistas Contra la Discriminación.

Exhibition creator Demián Flores was first exhibited by the Fisher Museum in 2006 and has works in the museum’s permanent collection, as well as in the collections of El Museo Universitario Arte Contemporáneo (MUAC) and London Print Studio, among others. Marco Barrera Bassols is one of Mexico’s most esteemed independent curators. Bassols has worked on important international art projects, including with MoMA in New York.

Renaissance Literature with Lynn Enterline

"Instructive Nymphs: Andrew Marvell on Pedagogy and Puberty"

Remarkable for his linguistic abilities, Andrew Marvell was acquainted with the humanist classical curriculum and the standard methods of contemporary pedagogy from both sides of the teacher-student relationship. This paper examines Marvell’s critical interrogation of gender and desire from within the discursive and institutional parameters of his classicism while showing that the way he repurposes ancient precursors requires us to think carefully about the overlap between Marvell’s critique of erotic life and non-normative psychoanalytic theory.  At the same time, it examines why, contrary to contemporary expectation, Marvell engages with the ideology and practice of contemporary education by way of teachers who are not men, or even boys, but little girls.

Lynn Enterline is Nancy Perot Mulford Professor of English at Vanderbilt University.  Her publications investigate the overlapping histories of rhetoric, affect, gender, and sexuality from the classical to the early modern periods.  She is the author of Shakespeare’s Schoolroom: Rhetoric, Discipline, Emotion (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2012); The Rhetoric of the Body from Ovid to Shakespeare (Cambridge UP, 2000); and The Tears of Narcissus: Melancholia and Masculinity in Early Modern Writing (Stanford UP, 1995).
