Museum of Russian Icons announce Curator’s Talk Why wrestle angels? Who’s asking? with Exhibition Curator Lynette Hull

Wrestling with Angels explores how God relates to man and how man wrestles with God in order to understand life’s meaning. In this curator’s talk, discover the unspoken assumptions behind the icons, how the iconographer communicates these assumptions artistically and why they matter. The 45-minute lecture will be followed by a Q&A with the curator.

Lynette has studied iconography with Vladislav Andrejev for fifteen years. She lectured at Princeton University, Cambridge University, England, University of Toronto, Canada, Wheaton College, and many other universities, seminaries, and churches. She has participated in icon exhibits throughout the US and Russia. She organizes teacher workshops and conferences for the Prosopon School, occasionally assists Mr. Andrejev, teaches beginner workshops and holds open studios at her home.
