Lecture: Louis Kahn and Group '55, and the Idea of Modernism by Izzy Kornblatt

10/29/20
7:00 pm
8:30 pm
Online (via Zoom)
Lecturer: Izzy Kornblatt, architectural historian
 
Kahn’s involvement of Group ’55 offers a window into both Kahn’s and the larger group’s respective understandings of what it meant to be modern within the arts. Beginning with an outline of Kahn’s educational and visual arts background, this talk illuminates how Kahn developed distinctive ideas about the purpose and importance of art that he brought to Group ’55 in the form of a series of speeches given at group events. Those ideas reveal new dimensions to Kahn’s thinking and challenge long-held assumptions about the meaning of his buildings.
