Squares, Nudes and Revolution: Narratives of Modern Art, Part 1

Class time: August 22 & 31, September 5, 12, 21, 26 & 28 • 3:30 – 5:10 PM each day

In Collaboration with Minnesota State University Moorhead, Led by Dr. Anna Arnar

These seminar lectures focus on some of the most revolutionary moments in 20th-century Art between 1900 and 1940 that ushered in abstract art and experimental practices in collage, film, performance, photography, architecture and design. This class will delve into the writings of artists and critics of the time as they attempt to articulate their groundbreaking goals in manifestos, poems, booklets and newspaper articles. Explore the opening years of the 20th-century that introduced major social, political and technological changes that profoundly shaped the modern age.
