Abstract Expressionism Reconsidered: A Roundtable Discussion Thursday, March 10, 2011, 6:30 p.m. Theater 3 The work of the Abstract Expressionists during the postwar period in New York was characterized by the deep conviction that contemporary painting could be not only a vehicle for personal expression, but also a form of spiritual experience. Artists Brice Marden and Tauba Auerbach and anthropologist Michael Taussig discuss the continuing relevance and implications of this viewpoint. Laura Hoptman, curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture, moderates the discussion.
