On/After Boucher – Lecture with Molly Vaughan

December 9, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm PST


Join Frye Art Museum’s Boren Banner artist Molly Jae Vaughan for a ritual performance and public lecture exploring the work of Francois Boucher (1703 – 70). Boucher’s jubilant, fluid and coloristic style was criticized later in his life as frivolous, but his opulent and decorative drawings from mythology draft the perfect canvas for Vaughan. Her ongoing series After Boucher inserts transgender people into this lavish Rococo world.

This event is free, but space is limited and we recommend you reserve your tickets ahead of time.

In the words of Rococo Queen Marie Antoinette, “Let them eat cake!” Doors open at 6 pm for “The Gay” cupcakes from Cupcake Royale and sparkling cider. Refreshments are limited and first come, first serve. Auditorium seats will open at 6:30 pm with standby tickets released at 6:45 pm.

Please note: Masks will be required for audience members during the lecture regardless of vaccination status.
