    Saturday, January 29, 2011, 11:15 am

    Nothing’s New under the Sun: Post-Modernism

    Saturday, January 22, 2011, 11:15 am

    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!

    Physical Fact/Fleeting Idea: Minimalism and Conceptual Art

    Saturday, January 15, 2011, 11:15 am

    Is it possible for a work of art to refer to nothing but itself? How much can be eliminated before nothing is left? Come find out about artists who don't always make their own work and artists for whom the idea—rather than the object—is supreme. Artists discussed will include Carl Andre, Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt, Robert Mangold, Agnes Martin, and Robert Morris.

    Outside the Walls: Art Beyond the Museum

    Saturday, January 8, 2011, 11:15 am

    When artists don't want to be slaves to the art market, they may choose to make art outside with untraditional and ephemeral materials. Artists discussed will include pioneers in this area—including Christo and Robert Smithson—and some of the more contemporary artists they have inspired—including Olafur Eliasson and Andy Goldsworthy.
