Reverberations: Historical and Art Historical Collisions

In conjunction with the exhibition Inventing Downtown:
Artist-Run Galleries in New York City, 1952–1965

Exploring pressing social issues around art in New York during the 1950s and ’60s—a moment in American history that is both transitional and transformative—this roundtable discussion will examine the proliferation of art and other visual images relating to the Holocaust, the Cold War, civil rights, free speech, and access to, separation from, and collision of public and private space. Moderated by Norman Kleeblatt, Susan and Elihu Rose Chief Curator, The Jewish Museum, with speakers Steven Nelson, professor of Art History, University of California at Los Angeles; Lisa Saltzman, professor of History of Art, Bryn Mawr College; and Andrew Weiner, assistant professor of art theory and criticism in Art & Art Professions, NYU.
