Athenaeum Art History Lectures: Francis Bacon

Hugh Davies will discuss all things Francis Bacon. Pictured: a self-portrait by the artist.

ATHENAEUM ART HISTORY: FRANCIS BACON

An Introduction to Francis Bacon is a series of two art history lectures presented by Hugh Davies, director emeritus of the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego. On April 13, Davies will introduce “Francis Bacon: Paintings from 1945–1973” and on May 25, “Francis Bacon: The Late Work.” Hugh Davies did his doctoral dissertation on Francis Bacon at Princeton University, largely based on a series of interviews with the artist in London from February through July 1973. Davies co-published another book on Francis Bacon through Abbeville Press in 1986, contributed chapters and articles on Bacon for several other publications and exhibition catalogues, and curated Francis Bacon: Papal Portraits in 1999 for MCASD. He currently serves as one of the five members of the Francis Bacon Authentication Committee, which published his catalogue raisonné in 2016. You could say the guy really loves Bacon.

Tax Day Trump March

“As we protest Trump...”, we march

TAX DAY TRUMP MARCH

This from the promoters: “As we protest Trump, we acknowledge that Trump’s conflicts are a symptom of a deeper problem in our tax structure and the structure of our economy as a whole, that ultra-wealthy and profitable corporations manipulate our tax structure and the global financial markets to get out of paying taxes and keep most of their profits for themselves or their wealthy investors. This design flaw in our economy results in wealth for the richest 1%.” Want to go? 10 a.m.: gather at the County Administration Building. 10:15 a.m.: rally begins. 10:50 a.m.: march begins. Noon: march ends at Civic Center Plaza and teach-ins begin.

The parks run along the San Diego harbor on the east side of San Diego Bay, on property administered by the Port of San Diego. San Diego hasn’t hosted a Red Bull Air Race since 2009.
