Abstraction Then & Now 1913-2013

August 13, 2013

2–4 pm

The infamous Armory Show of 1913 in New York City exposed Americans, for the first time, to European paintings and sculpture without a recognizable subject. The American audience was baffled. Over the next 100 years, however, artists from around the world have embraced the idea of abstract art. Trace this fascinating topic from Vassily Kandinsky's 1913 painting Composition VII to James Turrell's recent site specific installation, Aten Reign, currently on view at the Guggenheim Museum in New York.

Join art historian Ann Wiklund at Sonoma Valley Museum of Art, Tuesdays, August 13 and 20, from 2-4 pm, as we celebrate 100 years of abstraction, including a look at the Museum's own exhibition Akin: The Art of Nicole and Marc Katano.
