Where Folk Art and Modern Meet
Jamie Franklin
This presentation looks at the intersection of folk art and modernism , primarily in America , during the early to mid-twentieth century . As early as the 1910s , objects such as hooked rugs , weathervanes , decoys , and portraits by itinerant artists began to be appreciated by progressive artists , dealers , collectors , and curators for their aesthetic value , as opposed to their purely historic interest . By the late 1930s “ folk art ” came to be seen as an integral aspect of modern art , shown alongside the likes of Picasso and Klee at the Museum of Modern Art in New York . This illustrated presentation will explore this evolution and its continuing impact on artists and the art world in the 21st century .
Tuesday , December 6 / 5:30-7 pm Burr and Burton Academy , Founders Hall Or via Zoom $ 18
