March 5, 2017 2-4:00pm | Siren Call of Paris

Exploring Paris from the 1870s to 1950s, Mato will discuss Paris' role as the centre of western arts and culture. Particularly, he will explore the period known as "Les annés folles- The Crazy Years," in which a new generation of artistis, writers and musicians flocked to the city. This included historic art figures such as Pablo Picasso, Gertrude Stein, Ernest Hemingway, Kandinsky, Josephine Baker and countless others.

March 12, 2017 2-4:00pm | Foreign Lands- Abstraction

This lecture is a look at the impact of non-European arts upon the development of modern art in Europe before the First World War. During this time Artists in France and Germany sought out inspiration off the shores of Europe in Africa, Asia, New Guinea and the Pacific which attributed to the development of Cubism, Expressionism, Dada and Surrealism.

April 2, 2017 2-4:00pm | Modern Sculpture- Exploring Form & Material

Mato will discuss the development of Modern sculpture from its emergence in the early 20th century with artists such as Rodin, Degas, and Matisse and there use of the human figure as a point of departure. He will explore the move to increasingly abstract forms in the work of artists like Brancusi, Lipchitz and Archipenko.

April 9, 2017 2-4:00pm | Alchemy of Abstraction

In his final lecture of the series, Mato will question abstraction. Can there be a single and comprehensive definition of abstraction or merely an enigmatic understanding? Is abstraction a planned composition or the spontaneous gesture of an artist? Can there be schools of abstraction or merely individual expressions that share a philosophy or theory?
