Lecture: Against Imagism

Saturday, November 23, 2019
1:30 PM – 2:30 PM
Free with general admission or current membership

Join us for a lecture by curator Robert Cozzolino, where he addresses questions such as:
Where did the Imagist term come from? What has it done? Let’s look at art in Chicago another way – without the labels that have weighed it down and put it at the margins. What if we purged “imagist” and “imagism” from how we organize and think about Chicago art? What might be gained by looking at relationships anew?

Robert Cozzolino is the Patrick and Aimee Butler Curator of Paintings at the Minneapolis Institute of Art.

Sponsored by Terra Foundation for American Art.
