Art and Art History Professor Frances Connelly was invited by the Museo Picasso in Málaga, Spain, to be a featured speaker during the opening week of their exhibition “El Factor Grotesco.” In addition to her lecture, she wrote an essay for the 350-page exhibition catalogue.

This work draws on her book, just published this fall with Cambridge University Press, titled “The Grotesque in Western Art and Culture: The Image at Play.”
