Thursday, November 6th at 7 p.m.
Heather Cotter, a visiting lecturer from the Museum of Modern Art, will discuss the exciting new exhibit Jean Dubuffet: Soul of the Underground. Jean Dubuffet (French, 1901–1985) maintained a rebellious attitude toward prevailing notions of high culture, beauty, and good taste, and was a relentless innovator from the time he committed himself to art making in the early 1940s. By focusing on the key moments in his career, Cotter will illuminate Dubuffet’s radical experimentation with form and material from the 1940s to the mid-1960s.
