The New Art of the 1960s – with John Lobell
March 25 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
The New Art of the 1960s – A richly illustrated lecture by John Lobell
Breaking forth from the Abstract Expressionism of the 1940s and 1950s, the 1960s brought us an explosion of new art forms: Pop, Minimal, Performance, Psychedelic, Conceptual, Environmental, etc. But there were really just three themes: the flat canvas, every-day life, and the new forms. Join us for a reminiscence on the marvelous era and hear what all of these movements have in common.
