Saturday Night Art Lectures by John luna, Lecture #1: Taste


We are excited to announce that John Luna will be giving three Saturday Night Art Lectures this fall: Taste, Flow and Aura!

Lecture #1: Taste

Major shifts in artistic sensibility are often attendant upon emerging transformations in social decorum. How then is personal taste as a means of evaluating art reconciled to more social and conceptual approaches to criticism? This lecture will consider the validity of the practice of ‘good taste’ in relation to kitsch, artistic influence and social media. Some of our reference points will include critics Clement Greenberg, Robert Hughes and Rosalind E. Krauss, as well as artists Edouard Manet, Andy Warhol, Félix González-Torres, and Jeff Koons

Lectures are on Saturday evenings from 6:30 – 9:30. Each lecture is $15. Lectures are open to everyone so please arrive early to assure good seats! Drinks will be available before the lecture starts and during intermission.

Thank you to Scott Vannan, of MacDonald Realty, for sponsoring these lectures!
