"Paying Up: Pieter Brueghel the Younger, Loan Sharks, and the Visual Rhetoric of 'Money Worries'" Gallery Talk by Professor Connie Mick

Tue Feb 20, 2018, 12:00PM - 12:45PM

O'Shaughnessy II Gallery

Join Professor Connie Mick, co-director of the Poverty Studies Interdisciplinary Minor, for an examination of how a 17th century painting of paying taxes helps us question experiences of "paying up" today. Professor Mick will look at the transactions taking place in Pieter Brueghel the Younger's painting The Payment of Tithe to reflect on the "touchless" exchange of money in today's economy.
