Visionaries Lecture Series | Winter Session

Winter 2017 lectures are on Mondays, January 23 - March 6 (no class February 20).

Lecturer: Otis College of Art and Design Associate Professor of Art History, Jeanne Willette, PhD.

Visionaries Lecture Series explores significant art, fashion, and design movements. The 2017 winter session is focused on the 1960s to coincide with the OCMA exhibition Pop Art Design. The 1960s ushered in tremendous social changes reflected in the many groundbreaking art forms that emerged. Attention will be directed to the return of German art including artists like Gerhard Richter and Joseph Beuys. A focus on pop culture will include the rise of rock n/ roll and the importance of album cover art. The lively times of Mary Quant and Swinging London will be explored as well as the work and influence of pop culture icons like Andy Warhol. Finally, no cultural conversation about the 60s would be complete without delving into two of the decade's most influential style icons, Jacqueline Kennedy and Grace Kelly.
