Join us for University of Arizona Professor Paul Ivey’s ArtNow! series, Themes in Postmodern Art– a trio of lectures that examine concepts relevant to contemporary art and artists over the past fifty years.
MOCA has pivoted this lecture series to a webinar format. Please register for the webinar using the link below.
Professor Ivey teaches modern and contemporary art in the School of Art at the University of Arizona. His research interests include the built environments of alternative American religions, and spirituality in contemporary art. His graduate education at Binghamton University occurred in the heyday of discussions concerning Postmodernity, and included seminars with Donald Preziosi, John Tagg, Jean Francois Lyotard, Victor Burgin, William Spanos, and other luminaries in Postmodernism. His most recent book is Radiance from Halcyon, A Utopian Experiment in Religion and Science (2013), a revealing history of a surprisingly influential theosophical utopian community, and he is also author of Prayers in Stone, Christian Science Church Architecture in the United States (1999), which traces the rapid growth of a new religious movement and its very ambitious construction program.
