Lecture | 1960s: The Crucible Of The Postmodern

Whether challenged by the limits of traditional media or excited by the aesthetic potential of new technology, artists of the 1960s felt the imperative to calibrate their work more closely to real experience and to engage the spectator as never before. New York University Associate Professor Julia Robinson explores how this break with past traditions paved the way for contemporary art today. This event is part of Carnegie Hall’s The ’60s: The Years that Changed America festival.

Included with Museum Admission; RSVP Recommended.
