Met Museum Viewpoints
The Metropolitan Museum has been doing a series (for how long I cannot tell) Viewpoints on body language from particular sculptures with a link to Storify. There are accompanying lectures. It is fascinating.
How does the sculpted body communicate? Hear from Met experts, leading authorities, and rising stars, each with a unique perspective on the language of gesture, facial expression, and pose.
Hear diverse viewpoints from curators, educators, musicians, theater actors and directors, neuroscientists, and a deaf American Sign Language user.
Watch videos of dancers and choreographers interpret the body's expression. Share your viewpoints on social media. We'll repost selections on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest.
Body Language features twenty works of sculpture from three departments: European Sculpture and Decorative Arts, Medieval Art, and the American Wing.
