Abstract Art: Practices & Issues from the Provincial to the Global
Mark A. Cheetham, Professor of Art History, University of Toronto

Sunday 6 December, 1-3pm

Abstract art embraces a potent tension over its 100+ year history: it makes claims to universality yet reveals the powerful stamp of particular places and schools of thought. In Canada, Les Automatistes and Les Plasticiens are synonymous with Montréal while Painters Eleven is rightly associated with Southern Ontario. How did abstract art respond to place in the mid 20th century? What connections and comparisons can we make bewteen these contexts and contemporary, “global” abstraction? FREE!
