#tbt DeTOUR: That Time We Were Inspired by The Breakfast Club

Memorial Art Gallery
Thursday, November 16, 2017
6:00 PM to 7:00 PM

We’re going back to school for this MAGsocial DeTOUR inspired by the beloved line from the Breakfast Club, “But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain, and an athlete, and a basket case, a princess, and a criminal.” These stereotypes are not just rampant in schools and -now that some of us are “adults”- the workplace; they are also ever-present in the art world. On this night of throwbacks (complete with ripped jeans, baggy flannel, and maybe even some high tops (Yes! Get your outfits ready!)), we will tell you all about which artists in our collection had reputations for being “brains”, “athletes”, “basket cases”, “princesses”, “criminals”, and more, and how our artists took what society initially heralded as bad thing and made a career out of it.
