Beyond the Walls of the Museum: Interpreting Modern Art through an Archaeological Lens
Add to my Calendar Get DirectionsPrint This Event
What is the difference between "primitive" creations of the past and "art" of the present? Is modern art different from the artifacts that were created hundreds and even thousands of years ago? We, as humans, have the same inherent desires, imaginations, and capabilities our ancestors did. So why do we treat art so differently? Early civilizations represented the world around them through lines, form, and color, representative of the concept they wanted to express. Abstract art is no different. This lecture by archaeologist and HHS Museum Director Marie Kesten Zahn weaves a narrative of abstract art from the past to the present.
