The Life and Art of Louise Nevelson and Louise Bourgeois with Christian Conrad

The Life and Art of Louise Nevelson and Louise Bourgeois with Christian Conrad

This lecture will continue our examination of contemporary artists with a focus on two women who are instrumental to modern art. Louise Nevelson first began showing her work in the 1940s with a focus on figurative abstraction. As her career continued, she began creating large scale non-objective forms constructed from scrap material. Louise Bourgeois began creating surrealist sculptures in her native France before moving to the United States. After moving to America, she worked closely with the Abstract Expressionists in New York,creating forms that varied considerably in style. Join as we examine the work of two of the pioneering women in contemporary art.

The Life and Art of Damien Hirst and Antony Gormley with Christian Conrad

This lecture will focus on two of the more important contemporary artists working today: Damien Hirst and Antony Gormley. Hailing from England, both artists engage in work that often uses found material transformed into sculpture pieces. Antony Gormley’s work focuses on the human form, creating work that ranges from multiple small objects to figures that are monumental in size. Damien Hirst’s work is often controversial as he blends sculpture with conceptual ideas that are essential components of the art.

The Life and Art of Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth and David Smith with Christian Conrad

As the diversity of modern art began, sculpture was transformed into an art form that ranged from historical representation to pure abstraction. Three of the innovators of modern sculpture, Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, and David Smith, created forms that challenged the viewer to rethink what a sculpture could be. Henry Moore created sculptures that were rich in organic form and were often interpreted by the viewer as figurative. Barbara Hepworth’s art focused on non-objective concepts in sculpture with a strong consideration put to the idea of positive/negative space. An American, David Smith worked at the same time as the early Abstract-Expressionists. Join us as we examine the legacy of some of the innovators of contemporary sculpture.

The Life and Art of Richard Hamilton and Peter Blake with Christian Conrad

This lecture will feature an examination of British Pop art through the lives of Peter Blake and Richard Hamilton. From the same time period as American Pop art, the British movement had a similar connection to popular music and contemporary culture.  Peter Blake’s most famous work, the cover of the Beatles' album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, is but one of his famous album covers. Blake’s work beyond the Pop movement expands to include a variety of subjects, including British folk tales. Additionally, Richard Hamilton is considered by many historians to be the first Pop artist, with his imaginative collage work incorporating elements from consumer culture. Join us as we investigate these seminal artists of the British Pop movement.

The Life and Art of Yayoi Kusama and Jeff Koons

Yayoi Kusama and Jeff Koons with Christian Conrad

The two artists we will investigate both create contemporary Pop art, with Koons focusing on sculpture and Kusama primarily producing installation art.  Koons’ art is considered some of the most controversial based on his use of images and objects that are commercial properties whereby the artist has little to do with the creation or alteration of the work. Kusama’s work often incorporates polka dots into room-size spaces, resulting in a surrealistic effect on the viewer. Popular in the United States in the 1960s, Kusama’s work is experiencing a revival in the contemporary art world.

The Life and Art of Gerhard Richter and Anselm Kiefer

Gerhard Richter and Anselm Kiefer with Christian Conrad

This lecture will focus on two contemporary German artists who push the limits of what a painting can be. Richter’s paintings range in practice from pure abstraction to photorealism, with his work often considered controversial due to his nontraditional methods. Kiefer creates massive paintings and sculptures that incorporate materials such as broken glass, straw, and other found items. Both artists have been widely recognized for their art, and their work is held in the majority of contemporary museums worldwide.
