A TERRIBLE BEAUTY: The People & Shocking Ideas that Shaped Modern Art

February 22 @ 7:00 pm

In his two-part talk (second date: Thursday, March 22), Peter will explore how modern art arose from the profound changes and disruptions of the last two hundred years of history. Old certainties were erased. The modern mind that emerged was questioning, often subversive and inward-looking. We will explore some big ideas on how the purpose and audience for art were changed. These talks aim to make modern art comprehensible and exciting. You may not like all the art, but we hope that these talks will deepen your appreciation of why it was made and how it can make us look at our world differently.
