In conjunction with the exhibition Abstract Expressionist New York, MoMA presents New Perspectives on Abstract Expressionism: A Young Scholars’ Panel. The following four international graduate students have been selected to present their papers which uncover new scholarship, interpretations, approaches, and analysis of Abstract Expressionism:
Leanne Carroll, University of Toronto
“From Motherwell’s Tragedy, Newman’s Alienation, and Reinhardt’s Isolation to the Minimalist’s Renown: On the Reception of Artist-Writers”
Eileen Costello, The University of Texas at Austin
“Beyond the Easel: The Dissolution of Abstract Expressionist Painting into the Realm of Architecture”
Michelle DuBois, Boston University
“New Demarcations for Old: Refining and Redefining Abstract Expressionism Vis-à-vis a Consideration of the Willard Gallery Artists”
Valerie Hellstein, Stony Brook University
“Abstract Expressionism’s Countercultures: The Club, the Cold War, and the New Sensibility”
The panel’s selection committee members, David Anfam, Michael Leja, Katy Siegel, and Ann Temkin, will serve as respondents and moderate a discussion among the four selected scholars.
