Lacy Murphy, PhD candidate in the Department of Art History & Archaeology in Arts & Sciences, considers the etchings of French printmaker Charles Méryon, which celebrate the maze-like anarchy of the Île de la Cité in 19th-century Paris on the eve of Georges-Eugène Haussmann's massive urban renewal project. Through the etchings, the city is able to boldly assert itself, offering one final stand on the eve of certain destruction. The program will include live closed captions. Free, but registration is required.
