With the emergence of art movements in the sixties and seventies like Minimalism, Pop Art conceptual art, and performance art, many critics deemed abstract painting irrelevant or even “dead.” In reality, abstract painters in the United States and Latin America experienced a fruitful period of experimentation and innovation during this time. Join Blanton deputy director Carter Foster and Katy Siegel, senior research curator at the Baltimore Museum of Art, as they discuss art on canvas in the sixties and seventies featured in our new exhibition Expanding Abstraction: Pushing the Boundaries of Painting in the Americas, 1958–1983.
