NY-Paris: Intersections of Art

Fall 2019

Taught By: Rosemary O'Neill

Section: A

CRN: 7263

Credits: 3

With the 1977 exhibition “Paris-New York” organized by the Centre Georges Pompidou, director Pontus Hulten underscored the importance of “the vast and complex exchanges between two cities, between two continents” underscoring a view that the history of the past century has been one that is inseparable from a history of exchanges. Expanding beyond the visual arts, their interdisciplinary approach featured discussion of cinema, publishing, and architecture. What was missing from this landmark publication was a substantial discussion of the intersections of art and design in this history of multifaceted exchanges. This course will examine this relationship over the past century by considering how art and design in these two cities intersected. This course will also focus how exchanges between art and design were fostered as a result of institutions and collectors, and how dealers and auction houses cultivated links between the two practices and between these two cities.
