Around the Circle: Pepper Stetler
Around the Circle: Fresh Perspectives on Abstraction with Pepper StetlerWednesday, May 29, 2013 @ 6:30 pm
In this after-hours tour of New Harmony: Abstraction Between the Wars, 1919–1939, Pepper Stetler, Assistant Professor of Art History at Miami University of Ohio, explores the development of abstraction between the wars as an artistic statement of unity and universalism. After World War I, artists turned to abstraction to create an artistic model of society beyond nationalist boundaries and cultural differences. They also explored connections among diverse mediums, including painting, architecture, photography, and film, in order to define a “universal language” of art.
A reception follows the tour.
