Model as Muse
Saturday, August 6, 2022
Over the course of her decades-long career, Twinka Thiebaud posed for some of the twentieth century’s most renown photographers and artists. Prominent figures like Arnold Newman, Lucien Clergue, and Eikoh Hosoe all constitute parts of Thiebaud’s extensive career. The Crocker’s Adult Education Coordinator, Houghton Kinsman, sits down with photographers Judy Dater and Tami Bahat to explore Twinka Thiebaud and the Art of the Pose and discuss how the model, actress, and occasional painter’s catalogue is epitomized by a unique ability to perform for the camera. Following the conversation, join the panelists in the exhibition for an in depth look at three artworks and their relationship to the concept of model as muse.
