Join us for an introduction to the exhibition Body Matters / Martha Friedman with the artist and the exhibition's curator, Mitra Abbaspour. Friedman's multimedia sculptures draw on her studies of ancient Egyptian mummification, Greco-Roman portrait busts, and drawings of the brain structure and nerves by the early twentieth-century scientist Santiago Ramón y Cajal to explore the relationship between the mind and the body at various points throughout history. Event held during Princeton Reunions.
