Linda Nochlin’s Making It Modern: Essays on the Art of the Now
This panel celebrates the launch of Linda Nochlin's last essay collection, Making it Modern: Essays on the Art of the Now, which focuses on Nochlin's writings on modernism in art and politics, a central focus of her work throughout her career. From her first public lecture—a talk on art and French revolutionary politics that started with a quote from Karl Marx, given in 1956 at the height of McCarthyism in the US—and including both widely read and previously unpublished essays on topics ranging from French academic art to Andy Warhol's nudes, the book takes seriously Nochlin's insistence that to be modern was to be of one's time. What lessons do Nochlin's decades of passionate writing have for us today—what does it have to say about how to be in our time?

Speakers: Aruna D’Souza, Edmond J. Safra Visiting Professor, Center for Advanced Studies in the Visual Arts, National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C; Christine Poggi, Judy and Michael Steinhardt Director, and Professor of Fine Arts at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University; Rachel Silveri, Assistant Professor in the School of Art + Art History at the University of Florida.
