Keynote Speaker and Blizzard Lecturer: Serge Guilbaut

November 2, 2017  |  Keynote in Campbell Hall, Room 153  |  6 pm

Speakers will examine the role Kootz played as a dealer and advocate of French and American abstract painting starting as early as the 1930s, when he abandoned his law career in Virginia and moved to New York. Later, when he opened his gallery, Kootz played a significant role in the promotion of abstract expressionism, and brokered the sale of many key works from this period. His commitment to both French and American painting was reflected in his many exhibitions of work by French modernists and his complicated, but lucrative relationship with Picasso. The symposium will begin with keynote speaker, Serge Guilbaut on the evening of November 2nd. The following day, the symposium will continue with scholars and art historians, including Jennifer Farrell, Harry Cooper, Christa Robbins, and Sandy Hirsh (moderated by Jack Flam) who will shed light on Kootz and his impact on American art during this event.
