Lecture: Not Just a Guy’s Club: Gender Dynamics and Women Painters in the American 1950s

July 27, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Erika Doss, Professor of American Studies, University of Notre Dame

Celebrate the women who helped forge Abstract Expressionism, the first fully American modern art movement. Speakers will reassess the role of women painters within this movement that has been customarily defined by heroic male painters.

Erika Doss is professor of American Studies at the University of Notre Dame where she teaches courses in modern and contemporary American art and culture. Author of numerous publications, including Benton, Pollock, and the Politics of Modernism, her most recent book is Memorial Mania: Public Feeling in America (University of Chicago Press, 2010). The recipient of several Fulbright awards, Doss has held fellowships at the Stanford Humanities Center, the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum Research Center, and the Smithsonian American Art Museum. She is co-editor of the “Culture America” series at the University Press of Kansas and serves on the editorial boards of Public Art Dialogue and Material Religion: The Journal of Objects, Art, and Belief. Her current book project is “Spiritual Moderns: Twentieth Century American Artists and Religion.”
