Joseph Cornell: A Present Tense

Date + Time

Thursday, January 03, 2008
5:30 p.m.

Location

Koret Visitor Education Center

Overview

With his penchant for Victorian toy theaters and 19th-century ballerinas, Joseph Cornell is often presented as a singular, even eccentric artist caught up in a gauzy past. Taylor, however, sees the artist as resolutely modern and firmly engaged in his 20th-century world. In this program she leads an anti-nostalgic look at Cornell's wildly inventive and influential work.
