Add to Calendar

WHAT: Visual Arts Lecture: Meaning and Interpretation in Abstract Expressionism by Dr. Michael Schreyach, assistant professor, department of art and art history at trinity University.

WHEN: Thursday, February 27, 10:50 a.m. to noon. Reception to follow lecture.

WHERE: Visual Arts Center, Room 120

ADDL INFO: Dr. Schreyach approaches his study of twentieth-century Abstract Expressionist artists such as Jackson Pollock and Barnett Newman, through the lens of theoretical models developed from other fields, including philosophy, psychology, sociology and literary criticism.  As a result, he attempts to understand how the visual effects of their work is conveyed technically, operate culturally and can be interpreted philosophically.   

Professor Schreyach received his M.A. degree in art history at the University of Texas at Austin, and his Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkeley.  He is the recipient of fellowships from the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Getty Research Institute, and received a Terra Foundation for American Art Visiting Professorship at the the JFK Institute for North American Studies at the Freie Universität in Berlin.  He is the author of the two forthcoming books on twentieth-century American artists, Cy Twombly (London: Phaidon Press, 2014) and Jackson Pollock and the Perception of Abstract Expressionism

(in progress).
