The Twelve: Rockwell Kent and the Independent Exhibition of 1911

Speaker: 
Charles Brock
Thu, 12/03/2015 - 18:30
Thu, December 3rd, 2015 | 6:30 pm

EVENT DETAILS

In the spring of 1911, Rockwell Kent organized An Independent Exhibition of the Paintings and Drawings of Twelve Men. Kent’s exhibition was a pointed response to his mentor Robert Henri’s Independent Artists show of 1910 and Henri’s landmark exhibition of The Eight at the Macbeth Gallery in 1908. This discussion of alternative exhibition strategies will illuminate the conflicted nature of American modernism in the first decades of the 20th century.

All About Eve? William Glackens’s Mischievous Girl with Apple

Speaker: 
Teresa A. Carbone
Thu, 12/04/2014 - 18:30
Thu, December 4th, 2014 | 6:30 pm

EVENT DETAILS

William Glackens’s Girl with Apple, a studio nude painted for exhibition, was unusual in the context of his own work and that of his American peers. Glackens was responding to the long tradition of daring European nudes that had culminated in Édouard Manet’s startling Olympia. But what did this work mean in the context of 1910 New York? Was this a new bohemian ideal? Or was it all about Eve?

Note: This event has reached capacity.

 

EVENT DETAILS

During the 1870s, American trompe l’oeil painting enjoyed a rebirth. Usually seen as trickery, deception, or humor, Dr. Judith Barter’s lecture addresses trompe l’oeil as a type of painting that contained modern ideas. These contain narratives that reflect a new consumer culture, standardization and professionalism, memory and reality, and the very nature of painting itself.
