MOCA presents a 4-lecture series just in time for the new season of art exhibitions and fairs. This intensive training course introduces the essential issues that dominate art today. Led by Dr. Adrienne Von Lates, Education Curator, the lectures are designed to give participants the knowledge they need to interpret and appreciate art from 1990 to today. Participants will receive a list of artists and a bibliography, including online resources, to learn more about the artists or themes. No previous knowledge of contemporary art is required. This week's topics are: Modernist forms, political content; humor; the pathetic aesthetic; small scale, big ideas; sewing, knitting, crafting; childhood revisited. Each lecture is $10 for members and $15 for non-members. Seating is limited so reservations are recommended.
