Patricia Manos wins the Alex Klebanoff Award!

The Alexander Klebanoff Award for Outstanding Achievement in an Art History senior project was awarded to Patricia Manos.  Her project, “Strong in Our Weakness:” Yael Batana’s Strategies for Living with Ghosts (Advisor: Julia Rosenbaum) demonstrated extensive scholarship and daring originality in the area of modern art in the class of 2012.  The project is a study of the Israeli-Dutch artist Yael Bartana’s video trilogy “…and Europe will be Stunned,” which was completed for the 2011 Venice Biennale. Yael Batana was the first non-Polish artist chosen to represent Poland at its national pavilion.
