Audio Lecture: Artists Connect: Adelheid Mers Connects with Carl Blechen

Carl Blechen's Interior of the Palm House at Pfaueninsel near Potsdam (1834) serves as a point of departure for Adelheid Mers's presentation, in which the artist explains the evolution of her ambitious and often interactive diagrams that derive from a personal engagement with text and image.

Artists Connect is a regularly scheduled series of lectures given by Chicago-area artists. In these illustrated talks, artists describe their own work in relation to one or several works in the collection of the Art Institute.
