Events Victoria

Modern art refers to the group of art movements and styles that emerged in the later part of the 19th century up to the 1960s. Some of the styles that are categorized as modern art include surrealism, pop art, futurism, impressionism, op art, cubism and Bauhaus, among others. But despite the fact that it has been with us for quite a long time now, many people still do not understand this artistic style. Dr. Daniel Mato, Professor Emeritus of Art History from the University of Calgary, is going to open our eyes on what modern art truly is with his art lecture series. This year’s lectures focus on the “art between the wars”.

 

Schedule of Lectures:

March 6, 2016 – Art of Suspended Belief: The Surrealists

March 13, 2016 – Russian Art, Spiritual and Objective, Structure and Void

 

This is a fundraising project in support of the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria.
