Thomas Crow to Lecture at MAM
"Puppy" by Jeff Koons, Bilbao
Miami Art Museum is two-for-two in 2009 lectures.
On March 15, the museum delivered artist Richard Tuttle, and next Sunday, August 2nd at 3 p.m., it'll host Thomas Crow.
Crow is the Rosalie Solow professor of modern art history at the Institute of Fine Arts at NYU, but he's had previous appointments at the Getty, Yale, Princeton, Chicago, Cal Arts, etc. His book The Rise of the Sixties: American and European Art in the Era of Dissent is considered the book on '60s art to have prominently displayed on your Noguchi coffee table, so yeah, he's big in Japan.
The big brain on bread is going to wax your philosophical mustache on the topic of "The Expanding Empire of Pop: From Andy Warhol to the Beatles to Jeff Koons to Damien Hirst." I don't know about you, but I smell a book in that title.
Crow is also a contributing editor at Artforum, so whatever he says/writes is bound to be the Establishment's position. Time to put on your ears, Miami art world.
FYI: This past Sunday's Herb & Dorothy screening sold out, leaving many MAM members out in the heat, so get there early. Tickets cost $5 for members, $10 for the rest. (And being a member doesn't guarantee you a seat.)
