Victorious Secret

Kislak Center Exhibition

Angela Lorenz

Visual Artist

Created from buttons and hairpins, Angela Lorenz's life-sized mosaic panels of competitive women athletes from ancient Rome are based on originals in Piazza Armerina, Sicily, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In modern times, these original mosaics were thought to be “dancing bikini girls.” The exhibition is a tribute to archaeologist Isabella Baldini Lipolis and a celebration of the 40th anniversary of Title IX.

Join us on October 21st at 5:00, when Angela Lorenz will give a talk about "Victorious Secret," addressing gender inequality through the lens of art history. If you miss seeing the exhibition before her talk, her work will be on display in a new wing of Penn's historic Franklin Field through February 15th, 2016.
