Join us for a keynote talk with Vanja Malloy, the Mead Art Museum's curator of American art, as she explains her pioneering research on Dimensionism, an art movement during the early 20th century in which American and European artists responded in their work to the air of excitement from the scientific discoveries happening around them. After the talk, come experience this first-of-its-kind exhibition, Dimensionism: Modern Art in the Age of Einstein, at the opening reception. This program is offered with support from the Arts at Amherst Initiative.
Free and open to all!
