Art Deco 101: The Origins
Join ADSNY for its new series of online illustrated talks, Art Deco 101, in which educator and Art Deco expert Kathleen Murphy Skolnik gives an in-depth look at Art Deco architecture and design.
To kick off this series we answer the questions: What is Art Deco? Where did it come from? Why did it disappear? And what accounted for the resurgence of interest in Art Deco in the late 1960s?
Get your ticket to join Kathleen for this online illustrated talk that answers these questions and gives an insightful and entertaining look into the origins of Art Deco.
This web-based talk will use beautiful images to look at how:
- Scholars have interpreted Art Deco over the fifty years since the term first came into use
- Address the influence of nineteenth and twentieth century styles and design movements that contributed to its emergence
- Tour the International Exposition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts, the decorative arts exposition held in Paris in 1925 that brought Art Deco to the attention of an international audience
- Examine the reasons for the demise of Art Deco and the events that led to its later revival
Even though this illustrated talk is online, it will include a live PowerPoint—with wonderful images that you will be able to see directly on your computer screen, tablet, or mobile device—as well as a live Q&A session with participants.
Not able to join us at the time of the event? No problem! Those who register will receive a recording of the entire program a few days after the live presentation. When you sign up for the program you have the opportunity to watch, or rewatch, the recording at a time more convenient for your schedule.
