FOLWAG Lecture Series:
Abstraction - always with us but a long time coming

Saturday 13 March, 1pm-3pm


Abstraction did not just begin with Kandinsky or Picasso. Elements of abstraction can be found in all Art, but there were events and ideas in the Modernist era which caused artists to develop these elements. The Industrial Revolution was in full swing. The major thinkers of the time were Darwin, Freud, Marx and Einstein, and with these the Western World View and its Art changed forever.

Refreshments provided.
