Exhibition Talk: Caravaggio's Revolutionary Road

Thursday, September 19, 7:00 p.m.

Rome around 1600 was a hotbed of creativity, with artists competing for prestigious commissions. The revolutionary style of Caravaggio’s striking naturalism emerged from this epicenter of artistic activity and forever changed the course of art. Join Eve Straussman-Pflanzer, Head of the European Art Department and Elizabeth and Allan Shelden Curator of European Paintings at the Detroit Institute of Arts, for a talk about the Detroit Institute of Art’s masterpiece by Caravaggio, Martha and Mary Magdalene, c. 1598, on loan to the DMA.

Margaret Atwood

Monday, September 23, 7:30 p.m.

Margaret Atwood’s novel The Testaments, the brilliant sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale, answers questions that have tantalized readers for decades. When the van door slammed on Offred’s future at the end of The Handmaid’s Tale, readers had no way of telling what lay ahead for her—freedom, prison, or death. The Testaments picks up the story 15 years after Offred stepped into the unknown, with the explosive testaments of three female narrators from Gilead.

“Dear Readers: Everything you’ve ever asked me about Gilead and its inner workings is the inspiration for this book. Well, almost everything! The other inspiration is the world we’ve been living in.” —Margaret Atwood
