EPISODES IN ART NOW

Charles Reeve
, PhD

May 15 to June 19 Tu

7:00 - 9:00 p.m.
Much of today’s art compulsively
looks backwards for ideas to
take into the future. Prompted
by this impulse, our thematically-
oriented discussions examine the
return in contemporary art of
such influential issues as art for
art’s sake, identity politics and
the artist’s persona. Having been
raided from the past, how are
these themes updated, reworked
and woven into the cultural fabric
of the twenty-first century? And
might today’s art offer us anything
new — as, for instance, when it
engages with recent technology,
emerging philosophies or current
social conditions?

emerges. Bogdan’s work continues
