The Human Ounce
Written by Nicole Parizeau
Directed by Gary Graves
A new play about art and scandal:
A fine old painting on the gallery wall. Pride of place in the museum. The painter? An old master in his own right…admired worldwide, historically important, and an inspiration to thousands. And revealed as a monster. What now?
“This is how you raise awareness and shift the identity of an institution… To rectify centuries of imbalance, you have to do something radical”—Christopher Bedford, Curator, Baltimore Museum of Art
“Demonizing art is not a rational response to it. There is no way that you should punish the art for the crimes of the artist”—Jonathan Pugh, Oxford University
