Artist Respond: A Symposium - Morning Session

Date
  • Join us for a day of discussions and lectures on topics related to Artists Respond: American Art and the Vietnam War, 1965–1975. A group of distinguished scholars provides insights into how artists of the Vietnam War era sought to engage—with their current moment, with the public sphere, and with politics. Six artists whose work is in the exhibition—including Rupert García, Hans Haacke, and Martha Rosler—also speak, addressing their varied experiences of the war period.
