As part of the exhibition “A Few Conversations Between Women” at the Boston University Art Galleries, we asked BU faculty and alumni to discuss their work, their influences, and what community means to them. Episode 1 features Painting professor Breehan James and alum Madeleine Bialke (CFA 16).
About the Exhibition:
A Few Conversations Between Women stimulates an inter-generational dialogue of women artists working across a myriad of mediums and at different stages of professional development. This group exhibition explores the artistic voices of the women visual arts faculty of the College of Fine Arts and underscores the importance of mentorship of and between women. Participating faculty members were asked to select the work of a former mentor or recent alumnae they have advised to be presented alongside their own. The exhibition highlights the conversations that arise through these channels of influence and examines the multiple artistic lineages of women artists affiliated with the College of Fine Arts.
