Brooke Wyatt to Present at Stanford Symposium

The Standford University symposium, “Unexpected Partners: Self-Taught Art and Modernism in Interwar America,” is to be held virtually, January 27, 2023 from 8:00 am to 2:00pm, in conjunction with the exhibition Morris Hirshfield Rediscovered, curated by Richard Meyer and currently on view at the American Folk Art Museum. Graduate student Brooke Wyatt will present an aspect of her dissertation research as one of fourteen discussants. Talks will highlight the important contributions that self-taught artists made to the development of modernism in the United States, redressing these artists’ gradual exclusion from the art-historical canon in the postwar era and fleshing out a more representative narrative of American art.
