Paul Eli Ivey, art historian at the University of Arizona, continues his lecture series on Contemporary American Art at the Arizona Senior Academy next Thursday (April 25). The topic of his second lecture is “Pop, Minimalism and Earth Art,” covering the rise of consumer culture and reactions to it through these new movements.
It will be followed on May 16 with a final lecture, “The Dematerialization of the Art Object.” A Ph.D. from the State University of New York – Binghamton, his specialty is Modern and Contemporary Art, Theory and Criticism. He is sharing his expertise and research on this subject area in April and May.
In early May, Professor Ivey will be participating in signings of his just released book, “Radiance from Halcyon: A Utopian Experiment in Religion and Science,” published by University of Minnesota Press.
