Art, Nationality, and Global Modernism: Challenging a Well-Known Narrative
Saturday, May 05
4PM
Description
As the notion of a prevailing center that dominates the periphery is rapidly changing in all areas of our interconnected world, museums and collectors too are carving out new relationships with the modern and contemporary art of Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the assessment of international postwar Modernisms. This panel of international experts debates how museums and other cultural institutions have responded to this re-imagining of the history of Modernism and what effect that has on the acquisition and display of Modernist art.
