Critique and Conversation: "For the Eye"When: Mar. 28, 2014, 4pm - 5pm
Campus Location: Marjorie Barrick Museum / Harry Reid Center
Office/Remote Location: Main Gallery
Join the museum the last Friday of every month for informal and in-depth discussions about art and ideas.
Topic: Beauty and the book "Vision and Art: The Biology of Seeing" by Neurobiologist Margaret Livingston
Co-hosted by Jason E. Hill (UNLV Art Department visiting lecturer), Alisha Kerlin (Barrick collection manager), DK Sole (Barrick content specialist)
We will discuss the following statement provided for the Barrick Museum’s current exhibition:
"Art for Art's Sake" was the rallying cry of the 19th-century Aesthetic Movement, which believed that art should be enjoyed for its pure visual qualities. This exhibition reexamines this concept in a group of contemporary artists whose art focuses on sumptuous beauty and pure visual effects, allow us to revive Whistler's ideal that art should "appeal solely to the artistic sense of the eye."
