Art as Diplomacy in World War II
Special Exhibitions Gallery
Darlene J. Sadlier, professor of Spanish and Portuguese and director of IU’s Portuguese Program, will speak about the singular diplomatic role that the arts played in Nelson Rockefeller’s Office of the Coordinator of Inter-American Affairs (1940‒46). Her talk will provide historical context for understanding the polemics surrounding the exhibition Advancing American Art.
FRIDAY, DECEMBER 6
Art from 1913
Visitors should meet on the museum’s third floor.
In celebration of the one hundredth anniversary of the introduction of the European vanguard to American audiences at the International Exhibition of Modern Art (commonly known as the Armory Show), this one-hour exhibition will take an unusual approach by focusing on Western works of art that were produced in (or around) the year 1913. Nan Brewer, the Lucienne M. Glaubinger Curator of Works on Paper, will discuss a wide variety of artistic movements from Cubism and Futurism to German Expressionism and Social Realism that were prevalent at that time.
