"The Siqueiros Experimental Workshop"
Carlos Morales
Remote on Zoom. REGISTER HERE 
Carlos's talk, which is part of an ongoing project, will focus on the Mexican muralist and political activist David Alfaro Siqueiros' days in the United States, with particular attention to his time in New York City, where his 1936 Experimental Workshop participants included Harold Lehman and Jackson Pollock. That is where Pollock learned the spontaneous use of liquid paint.


August 21 at 5:00 p.m.
"The Humanity of Harold Lehman"
Greta Berman
The Juilliard School
Remote on Zoom. REGISTER HERE 
Greta will contextualize Lehman’s mural, “Man’s Daily Bread,” made for the penitentiary at Rikers Island, showing how it relates to WPA murals by other artists. Like so many at the time, Lehman dealt primarily with the human condition and issues of poverty, capitalism, and social justice. His 1930s style is what most of us think of as "WPA" or "New Deal,” but like several others, such as Philip Guston, James Brooks, and Seymour Fogel, he later developed semi-abstract and abstract imagery. 


August 28 at 5:00 p.m.
"Post 1940 American Cubism"
William C. Agee
Hunter College Emeritus
In person at Hoie Hall. No reservations required.
Also on Zoom. REGISTER HERE 
American Cubism? Did it exist? Yes, it was in full bloom by 1910. But because it didn’t look like Picasso or Braque it was often thought of as misunderstood, derivative, or provincial, in a pejorative sense. However it thrived and expanded on its own terms and when it was fading in Europe. After 1940 it evolved into new modes, was at the core of much of Abstract Expressionism, and was still a living force through the 1960s. And beyond.
