Cult of the Machine Opening Day Curator Lecture

March 24, 2018
2:00 pm
de Young Museum

Join us for the opening day of ‘Cult of the Machine’ with a lecture by Emma Acker, curator of the exhibition. Acker will introduce the themes explored by the artists featured in the exhibition and their connections to the present day. Free and open to the public. No reservations required. ABOUT THE EXHIBITION: Connections between the past and the present will be explored throughout this large-scale survey, which will feature more than 100 masterworks of American Precisionism by such modernists as Charles Sheeler, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Charles Demuth. This exhibition will shed scholarly light on the aesthetic and intellectual concerns undergirding the development of this important strand of early American modernism to explore the origins of its style, its relationship to photography, and its aesthetic and conceptual reflection of the economic and social changes wrought by industrialization and technology. How does innovation redefine humanity? Discover the surprising connections between the past and the present day through our Digital Stories: Image: ‘Classic Landscape’ | Charles Sheeler | 1931
