Paintings 1996 - 2005
May 08 – June 19, 2005
Thursday, May 26, 2005, 6:00 pm
Location: The Renaissance Society
The topic (Abstraction) and the time (Now) are forthrightly stated as this outstanding local brain trust makes no bones about the matter at hand. Abstraction: is it relevant? Are there stakes? (No promises, but if it gets hot enough there'll be a manifesto drafted.)
Panelists include: Darby English, Assistant Professor of Art History at the University of Chicago; Kathryn Hixson, Adjunct Associate Professor of History, Theory and Criticism at the Art Institute of Chicago; and Lane Relyea, Assistant Professor of Art Criticism at Northwestern University.
This event will take place in Cobb Hall Room 307 (directly below the gallery.)
This panel is being sponsored by Holliday T. Day in honor of Jane Addams Allen, a founding editor of The New Art Examiner, and a champion of abstraction.
