FOLWAG Lecture Series:
Art, Politics, Satire and Social Comment 

Saturday 24 April, 1pm-3pm


Most of our art is political in one way or another. Even works which are mainly narrative or descriptive often contain references to events of their times, or to social attitudes generally. Abstraction in America was encouraged because it was opposed to the Social Realism of the Soviet Union.

Refreshments provided.
