4/29      Linda James — Spirituality and Abstraction
In 1986, Maurice Tuchman curated an exhibit at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art called “The Spiritual in Art: Abstract Painting 1890-1985.” The exhibit was organized based on the well researched theory that the genesis of abstract art was inextricably tied to spiritual ideas current in Europe in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The pioneers of abstraction – Wassily Kandinsky, Hilma af Klint, Piet Mondrian, Kasimir Malevich and Frantisek Kupka – had abandoned representational art in favor of an art form that allowed them to express their inner spiritual lives. This lecture will focus on those artists and the artists who followed them – their work, their stories, their impact.
