Event description

Description

When the radical group of artists who came to be known as the Impressionists burst onto the scene in 1874, our ideas about “art” were forever changed, and the notion of the avant-garde was born. While the art emerging in the 1960s may have seemed shocking and new, these revolutionary gestures are rooted in an earlier era. Learning about “contemporary art” from the 1860s will help you grasp and appreciate the new, now.

This talk is part of an on-going art history series titled, This is What Happened: Art Since the 60s. These sessions are open to the general public and double as a core component of the Museum’s docent training program.
