Join curator Orianna Cacchione and Professors Christine Mehring (Art History) and Jessica Stockholder (Visual Arts) for a Humanities Day session that reflects on the exhibition Monochrome Multitudes through art historical, curatorial, and artistic points of view.
Monochrome Multitudes revisits a notoriously hermetic art to reveal its creative possibilities and conceive pedagogical strategies that make abstraction accessible from multiple perspectives. The exhibition aims to expand existing histories of “the monochrome” in three ways: articulating cultural, social, political, racial, or gendered meanings of monochrome art; emphasizing the hermeneutic significance of materials and media; and engaging North American art in a global dialogue.
