Thursday, November 12
6:30 – 8 pm
Art historians and authors Claire Bishop and Joshua Decter discuss the role and function of art in post-avant-garde times — particularly the notion of the historical avant-garde as challenging orthodoxies across disciplines, with those avant-garde heterodoxies eventually becoming orthodoxies in their own right. Claire Bishop is Professor in the History of Art Department, CUNY Graduate Center. Joshua Decter is the author of Art Is a Problem: Selected Criticism, Essays, Interviews and Curatorial Projects (1986-2012) and teaches at Cooper Union and the School of Visual Arts.
