What's Included

A lecture in art history is presented that will explore the roots of modernism (c. 1900-1970), and its legacy. With numerous examples chronicling the process, a good part of the lecture will be dedicated how abstract art came into existence. There will be not only attention paid to the big names of modernism (Picasso, Mondrian, et al.) but also to the developments that happened in the fringes, the footnotes, and margins of the official canon. Special attention will also be paid to some practical sides of modernism, information that each of you can take with you in your own studio practice. You will receive a few handouts and you are encouraged to take notes, ask questions, and engage in a dialogue. Supply List: none
