With Associate Curator of Education Nancy Spector
Cubism was born in France from the partnership of Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso, but its influence reached around the globe in the decades that followed, creating an explosion of innovation and creativity in visual art that was embodied in the work of Robert and Sonia Delaunay, František Kupka, Marcel Duchamp, Kazimir Malevich, and other early twentieth-century masters.
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.
