Throughout the Newark Museum’s Centennial, invited guest speakers and our own curators have led informative discussions that complement the celebratory exhibitions. Aptly labeled, “Centennial Conversations,” the final dialogue will be a Panel Discussion, Abstract Art – A Living Legacy on Wednesday, April 28 from 6 pm to 8 pm. An international group of contemporary artists will focus on the legacy of constructivist abstract art as is relates to their own work. This is the final program in a series for the acclaimed exhibition, Constructive Spirit: Abstract Art in South and North America, 1920s-50s.
The free event includes a reception followed by the artist panel discussion moderated by Matthew Deleget, director of MINUS SPACE, a Web site and gallery devoted to reductive art, located in Brooklyn, New York.
