Lecture: Interperting Modern Art through an Archeological Lens
Name:Lecture: Interperting Modern Art through an Archeological Lens
Date:August 30, 2019
Time:1:30 PM - 4:00 PM EDT
What is the difference between "primitive" creations of the past and "art" of the present? Is modern art different than the artifacts that were created hundreds and even thousands of years ago? We, as humans, have the same inherent desires and capabilities our ancestors did. so why do we treat art so differently? Early civilizations represented the world around them as lines, form, and color, representative of the concept they wanted to express. Abstract art is no different. This lecture weaves a narrative of abstract art from the past to the present, using works of Ellsworth Kelly at the center.
