Lee Ufan: Marking Infinity

Through Sept 28, 2011
Described by the New York Times as "an oasis of cool serenity" and "impeccably elegant", Lee Ufan: Marking Infinity positions the preeminent Korean sculptor, painter, and writer as a historical figure and contemporary master. The exhibition displays a selection of sculpture, paintings, works on paper, and installations of Lee’s most iconic works, many presented in the United States for the first time.

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

Agency of The Everyday
Romy Golan (New York) on Italy in 1970: The Missing Structure
Stefano Chiodi (Milan) and Luigi Ontani (Rome) in conversation

Agency in Action

Branden Joseph (New York) on Biomusic

Writing a Global History of Art, circa 1970
