Alina Szapocznikow: A Symposium

Friday, October 5, 2012, 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Theater 3 (The Celeste Bartos Theater), mezzanine
The Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Building

Held in conjunction with the exhibition, this symposium presents new scholarship on Alina Szapocznikow's two-decade-long career. Long influential in Poland, Szapocznikow's compelling body of work, which synthesizes postwar European sculptural modes - academic, Social Realist, Expressionist, biomorphic abstraction, found-object, Neorealist, and Pop - is ripe for art-historical reexamination. International curators, scholars, and artists discuss postwar Eastern European art and Szapocznikow's position within it, her work viewed from a feminist perspective, her use of photography and works on paper in the context of her larger sculptural production, and her increasing influence on a younger generation of Eastern European artists.

Symposium participants include Elena Filipovic and Joanna Mytkowska, artists Paulina Olowska i Katarzyna Kozyra, and art critics and historians Agata Jakubowska, Griselda Pollock and Anda Rottenberg.

Tickets ($12; $10 members and Corporate Members; $5 students, seniors and staff of other museums) can be purchased online or at the information desk, the Film desk after 4:00 p.m., or at the Education and Research Building reception desk on the day of the program.
To pick up tickets purchased online, proceed to the Education and Research Building reception desk at 4 West 54 Street beginning at noon on the day of the program.
