Description: Student curator Abigail Ramsbottom will lecture on Oscar Bluemner’s artistic development and explore the intersection of artist and art canonization, which is the way in which certain art and artists are selected, emphasized and commemorated in art museums and art history courses. The event will coincide with and pull from the Spring 2018 Oscar Bluemner exhibition, which illuminates Bluemner’s significance both during his lifetime and at the present moment, analyzing the ways the art institutions and the art market impacted the posthumous fate of Bluemner’s oeuvre. Where: Hand Art Center Seminar Room When: March 22, 2018 at 7 pm The Hand Art Center galleries will be open, following the lecture, until 9 pm. Cultural Credit Approved
