Episode 25 of 192 episodes

Monday, December 11, 2006 6:00 p.m. This panel considers various aspects of the avant-garde magazine. Examining experimental journals that were conceived as ongoing platforms for new works of art, graphic experimentation, and simultaneous expression in the arts, literature, philosophy, politics, and other fields, participants discuss the ways in which magazines represented the ideas of particular artistic and intellectual communities, even as they responded to and disseminated ideas internationally. With Liza Bear, former editor and co-founder with Willoughby Sharp of Avalanche magazine (1970–76); Benjamin Buchloh, Franklin D. and Florence Rosenblatt Professor of Modern Art, Harvard University and former editor of Interfunktionen (1968–75); Edward Sullivan, Dean for the Humanities and Professor of Fine Arts, New York University; and Willoughby Sharp, independent curator, artist, and former publisher and co-founder of Avalanche. Moderated by David Little, Director of Adult and Academic Programs, The Museum of Modern Art. Photo courtesy of Paula Court
