Join us for the symposium “American Art of the Sixties: Visual and Material Forms in a Transnational Context.” The two-day event, taking place on March 26 & 27 at Texas A&M University, aims to shed new light on American art and architecture of the long Sixties by furthering research that places artworks, buildings, artists, and art production within a transnational context. Scholars from across the globe examine how visual and material forms generate meanings within different geographical and cultural contexts, drawing on social art-historical, poststructural, and formal methodologies, thus bridging what Joshua Shannon, Jason Weems, and Jennifer Roberts have discussed as the “Americanist-Modernist divide.” Recuperating various transnational contexts that provide new interpretations of Sixties art and architecture, the symposium explores why some of these meanings have become dominant while others were lost across time and space.

The event is free and open to the public, but please RSVP by March 15 on our website, where you will also find the program, paper abstracts, speaker bios, location and travel information. See
