How Can We Find Meaning in a Work of Art?

Friday, October 29, 2004, 12:00 p.m.

Koret Visitor Education Center

Focusing on works in Between Art and Life, Charles explores the question of how viewers find meaning in contemporary art, which can sometimes be quite challenging. Charles provides art-historical perspective and encourages participants to respond with their own reactions to art by Bruce Conner, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Sherrie Levine, and others. The session concludes with a visit to the galleries.
