About The Event

Guest lecturer Ann Tartsinis, an art historian and curator from Oakland, California, visits the CMA to discuss the intersections between fashion, Piet Mondrian, and American Pop Art in relation to her research for her and Nancy J. Troy’s book Mondrian’s Dress: Yves Saint Laurent, Piet Mondrian, and Pop Art. This scholarly volume closely examines how the style of Mondrian’s abstract paintings was posthumously appropriated by 1960s fashion, Pop Art, and consumer culture. For this event, members of the Contemporary Art Society are joined by the Textile Art Alliance.
