King to talk celebrity, women, art and Gaga in VACI lecture

Elaine King is an art historian, curator and professor at Carnegie Mellon University interested in public policy, ethics and Lady Gaga.

Today at 7 p.m. in the Hultquist Center, King will give a talk titled “The Union of Art and Celebrity,” exploring the art of Cindy Sherman, Madonna and pop queen Lady Gaga, who she calls “the reigning champion of hyper-modernist culture.”

“I feel that they all challenged and addressed significant issues about the role and representation of women in society, how they’re shown in the media, as well as in the creation of art,” King said.
