Charles Percier: Architecture and Design in an Age of Revolutions
Join us on Sunday, February 5th at 1 PM for a private look at Bard Graduate Center’s Charles Percier: Architecture and Design in an Age of Revolutions, the first large-scale exhibition to focus solely on the French graphic artist, architect, and interior designer known for his eclectic taste and significant contributions to the Empire style in post-revolutionary France. In her tour, “Percier in Progress,” graduate student educator Persephone Allen will lead YPA members in an inquiry-based exploration of 3-4 exhibition objects, shedding light on Percier’s artistic training, development, and professional praxis in a period of political uncertainty.
Persephone Allen is a second-year Master’s student and Public Programs Fellow at Bard Graduate Center. Her academic work at BGC explores the material culture of Modernism and the legacy of the Bauhaus. She has five years experience working in education and holds a BA/MA in History from the University of Edinburgh.
