Brown Bag Lunch & Talk: John Elderfield

January 17, 2014

Why Matisse Matters
 – and de Kooning, Bob Dylan, and other great moderns

A leading authority on modern art, John Elderfield offers us an in-depth and insightful look at Henri Matisse, and his ongoing relevance in contemporary art and culture. Elderfield brings a wealth of knowledge to this talk, as an independent curator and art historian, a consultant to Gagosian Gallery, and as Chief Curator Emeritus of Painting and Sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art, New York where he directed more than 20 exhibitions, including Fauvism and its Affinities (1976), Kurt Schwitters (1985), de Kooning: A Retrospective (2011), and Henri Matisse: A Retrospective (1992).

This one-hour talk includes a self-serve brown bag lunch of a sandwich and small pastry, created by the AGO’s culinary team.
