The Twilight of Napoleon’s Egyptian Campaign (1798-1801): Scenes from the Description de l’Égypte
A STUDENT-CURATED EXHIBITION researched and prepared by the participants of Professor Darius Spieth’s Spring 2004 art history seminar on Colonialism, taught in LSU’s School of Art.
The exhibition was mounted in Hill Memorial Library, which houses the Special Collections division of the LSU Libraries. The exhibition paralleled a show of contemporary post-colonial art entitled “Beyond East and West” on view at the LSU Museum of Art in the LSU Memorial Tower. Visitors were encouraged to attend both shows in order to engage in the critical dialogue between Colonialism and Post-Colonialism suggested by the exhibitions. The “Twillight” exhibition opened April 16 and ran through August 10, 2004.
