Unorthodox

On Art History

Talk

Thursday, November 12, 2015
6:30 – 8 pm
Scheuer Auditorium

Art historians and authors Claire Bishop and Joshua Decter discuss the role and function of art in post-avant-garde times — particularly the notion of the historical avant-garde as challenging orthodoxies across disciplines, with those avant-garde heterodoxies eventually becoming orthodoxies in their own right. Claire Bishop is Professor in the History of Art Department, CUNY Graduate Center. Joshua Decter is the author of Art Is a Problem: Selected Criticism, Essays, Interviews and Curatorial Projects (1986-2012) and teaches at Cooper Union and the School of Visual Arts.

This program is made possible, in part, by the Edmond de Rothschild Foundations.

$15 General; $12 Students and Seniors; $10 Members
