Lecture: The Advantages of Obscurity: San Francisco Women Abstract Expressionists

September 21, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join Clyfford Still Museum and Denver Art Museum for the second lecture in Women of Abstract Expressionism in Context.  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.

Her books include The San Francisco School of AbstractExpressionism; Elmer Bischoff: The Ethics of Paint; and Richard Diebenkorn: The Ocean Park Series (essayist). Her forthcoming publication is Of Dogs and Other People: The Art of Roy De Forest (Berkeley: University of California Press, 2017).
