With subjects ranging from mythological and religious scenes to more playful genre imagery, these stunning works offer a rich overview of the narrative tradition in French art.

Behind the Scenes with Coco Fusco Reception

We are pleased to extend Circle Members the opportunity to meet internationally-acclaimed interdisciplinary artist and writer Coco Fusco, and preview her solo exhibition, Twilight, exploring the current political and social climate in Cuba as the Revolution enters its twilight years.
Organized by The Ringling, Twilight will premiere Fusco’s newest project, made possible by her 2016 Greenfield Prize. This short video-essay on culture in Cuba reflects on the anxieties emerging as the country faces an uncertain future. An RSVP is required and will be available at a later date.
