Book Launch: The Art Of Return by James Meyer
Dia:Chelsea, September 28, 2019
The Art of Return: The Sixties and Contemporary Culture combines art criticism, theory, memoir, and fiction to examine our enduring fascination with the long sixties, a cultural period that began with the civil rights movement and extended into the 1970s. James Meyer draws on a diverse range of topics from popular culture and contemporary art, including reenactments of civil rights, antiwar, and feminist marches, paintings, sculptures, photographs, novels, and films.
Meyer is a curator of modern art at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, and the curatorial and academic advisor at Dia Art Foundation. Meyer will introduce his book, followed by a conversation with artist An-My Lê and author Jennifer Egan.Video: Book Launch: The Art Of Return by James Meyer
