States of Emergency: Objects as Agency, ca. 1970
Fri, Sept 16, 12 pm Organized by David Joselit, Yale University, and Alexandra Munroe, Samsung Senior Curator, Asian Art, this daylong symposium asks how the proclamation of the “end” of the art object, a statement that was made in a startling number of locations around the world ca. 1970, demonstrated the end of both aesthetic and political modernity, and the advent of a decentered globalism characterized more by crisis than by revolution. Reception follows.
Topics and speakers include:
Objects as Political Agency
Mika Yoshitake (Tokyo) on Mono-ha: Structures of Disappearance
Joan Kee (Ann Arbor) and Lee Ufan (Kamakura & Paris) in conversation
