The Baker Museum Lecture Series
The Transcendental Painting Group
Michael Duncan, guest curator, art critic and a corresponding editor for Art in America
Michael Duncan will address the principal issues that motivated the Transcendental Painting Group and position their works within the framework of modern abstract painting and 20th-century American art. Besides giving a brief survey of the group, the lecture will include images of works not able to travel with the show and of archival material that helps fill out a more complete understanding of these artists’ remarkable works.
This presentation is part of the exhibition Another World: The Transcendental Painting Group.
