Description

Film by Eric Minh Swenson. Music The Inventors of Aircraft. As part of the Orange County Museum of Art's ongoing examination of its first 50 years, the museum presents the The Avant-Garde Collection—focusing on the evolving definition of avant-garde as it is represented in its collection. With Cubism, Abstract Expressionism, Pop, performance, and installation art in the 20th century and the pluralist tendencies of the 21st century, the challenge for artists to produce innovative work that conceals the influence of generations past is more daunting than ever. The exhibition illustrates this discourse with approximately 100 artworks that include painting, sculpture, assemblage, installation art, and video in myriad styles that all speak to the reactionary spirit of the avant garde. The exhibition is on view September 7, 2014, through January 4, 2015. For more info on Eric Minh Swenson or project inquiries visit his website: www.thuvanarts.com.
