VISIONARIES LECTURE SERIES: THE RACE TO MODERNITY (FALL) - Lecture 2

The second quarter of the twentieth century saw radical changes in art, design and fashion. Economic prosperity, technological advances and the development of mass communication systems furthered what it meant to be modern, and progressive social agendas provided  platforms for women to pursue exciting cultural endeavors. The 2015/2016 Visionaries Lecture Series will explore significant art movements during this time including haute couture, architecture, music and the advent of moving pictures.

 

Fall Session

Mondays, October 5 – November 9, 2015  |  1 - 3 pm

The Roaring Twenties ushered in tremendous social change. American women gained the right  to vote, while flappers set style trends. Abby Aldrich Rockefeller co-founded MoMA with two  other women and in Paris, creative powerhouses like Coco Chanel and Jeanne Lanvin reigned as premier couturiers. Art Deco flourished, the Bauhaus was born and pioneers like Gertrude  Stein, Piet Mondrian and Georgia O’Keeffe made significant contributions to modernism.
