Abstract Painting Mid-Century + Today

Abstract Painting Mid-Century + Today | Webinar

Abstract painting was core to the first distinctly American art movement, canonized in the mid-20th century as Abstract Expressionism. Over the past few decades, a rewriting of art history has been underway to more accurate reflect the diversity of artists practicing in this vein during this notable period. Panelists Dr. Marisa Kayyem and Kira Burge will trace the mechanisms furthering the rewriting of art history followed by presentations from practicing Seattle-based artists and abstract painters, Jazz Brown, Sue Danielson and Amanda Knowles. The webinar will conclude with discussion and audience Q&A.
