Art Criticism in the Post-Medium Age: Groys and Lovatt in Conversation

Tate Modern, Starr Auditorium
Monday 19 May 2014, 18.30 – 20.00
£12, concessions available
Untitled 1965/71 by Robert Morris born 1931


How has formalist and poststucturalist thinking shaped our understanding of art and art history in the 20th century? What relevance do such ideas have today, in an age where anything goes and artists work in a ‘post-medium’ world?

Professor Boris Groys and Dr Anna Lovatt explore the work of modernist critic Clement Greenberg and his brilliant student Rosalind Krauss, considering among other things the changing role of the art critic and scholar, the continuing potency of the idea of the avant-garde, and the fate of the modernist project in the 21st century.

In partnership with Thames and Hudson
