Symposium: Locating Expressionism

LACMA

5905 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036

10:00am

Noted art historians and scholars convene in this two-day symposium on the occasion of the exhibition Expressionism in Germany and France: From Van Gogh to Kandinsky to shed new light on the extraordinary response of artists in Germany and France to key developments in modern art in the early 20th century.

For the first time in a major museum exhibition, LACMA presents Expressionism not as a distinctly German style, but as an international movement in which artists responded with various aesthetic approaches to the work of modern masters. The German side of the story has been less well known in the United States until just recently, and LACMA's groundbreaking exhibition provides visitors and scholars alike an opportunity to explore the nuances of the interrelationship between a group of artists that includes not just Van Gogh and Kandinsky, but Henri Matisse, Georges Braque, Andre Derain, Erich Heckel, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, and many others. Sponsored by the museum and the Historians of German and Central European Art, topics presented explore in depth the relationship between French art and Germany artists, Cubism's impact, and the impact of non-Western art on European art from this era.
