His History of Art features a three-channel video series written, starred, and co-directed by artist Jayson Musson, who describes it as “a sitcom orbiting art history and all the fun to be had dancing on the minefield of the past.” Taking inspiration from the structure and tone of educational programs such as PBS children’s shows and nun-turned-art critic Sister Wendy Beckett, Musson conducts a satirical survey on art history, its relationship to the general public, and the ways in which popular art historical images impact cultural consciousness.

His History of Art was organized by The Fabric Workshop and Museum, Philadelphia, and is coordinated at the CAC by the Curatorial Department, and in collaboration with Christina Vassallo, Alice & Weston Harris Director. Learn more about the exhibition.
