Controversies in Modern Art

June 23 @ 2:00 pm - 12:00 am

Event Navigation

Marshall University art history professor Dr. Heather Stark will talk about “Controversies in Modern Art.” The 19th and 20th centuries introduced a plethora of new forms of visual representation to the public, many of which were rejected or their legitimacy as art challenged. Dr. Stark will discuss three such controversial works and the controversies they provoked – James Whistler’s 1877 libel suit against critic John Ruskin, Constantin Brancusi’s 1926 modern sculpture Bird in Space that led to a trial over what constitutes a work of art, and Maya Lin’s design of the Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial that was dedicated in 1982. Admission is $10 per person and includes refreshments after the lecture. Contact the Humanities Council to reserve a seat.
