Abstract:

"Artist David Schutter is an associate professor in the Department of Visual Studies at the University of Chicago. Schutter's project constitutes drawings he created in response to renderings of the human emotions ("passions") by the great French artist Charles Lebrun: these renderings have been used by artists and students for centuries as models of facial expressions. Schutter's practice involves deep engagement with the history of art, memory, the body, affect theory, and more. The book features an introductory essay by the artist himself as well as essays on the work by critics Barry Schwabsky and Dieter Roelstraete"--.
