Nothing’s New under the Sun: Post-Modernism

5,000 Years of Contemporary Art Lecture Series

Saturday, January 22, 2011, 11:15 am

FREE for Gallery Members / $10 for non-members
Auditorium

With Associate Curator of Education Nancy Spector

Did you know that modernism is over? Many feel it ended in the 1970s, when truth and history were called into question by the philosophy known as postmodernism. Before you come to this lecture, make sure to throw away all of your preconceptions about what art is, what artists do, and what art history has been!

The 5,000 Years of Contemporary Art Lecture Series continues through March 12, 2011. Throughout the series, Curator of Education Mariann Smith, Associate Curator of Education Nancy Spector, and guest speakers will use the Gallery’s Collection and other selected works to tell the story of art from ancient times through today.

Doors for all lectures open at 11 am.
