Mapping the Spaces of Global Contemporary Art

Wed, 05/03/2017 - 3:46pm -- lwhite

Contemporary art is a global phenomenon, and its geographic spread complicates the historical axis upon which art has traditionally been plotted. If modernism inaugurated the white cube space of the museum, contemporary art increasingly shuns such confines for the peripatetic and ephemeral sites of the global art fair, the biennale, and the site-specific intervention. This lecture travels along the routes and through the spaces of contemporary art, exploring how artists in the past two decades have mapped their position as both the subjects and the agents of globalization. 


This is the second lecture in the three-part series "What Is Contemporary Global Art?" Click Here for more information on the series.


A wine and cheese reception will be held before each lecture at 5:30 pm. Tickets are $20 per lecture or $50 for a series pass.
