Debra Balken at MoMA and SVA

Independent writer and curator Debra Balken (Lecturer, Graduate Studies) will lecture on Harold Rosenberg at the Museum of Modern Art and the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Her talks discuss some of the ways in which Harold Rosenberg’s key essay “The American Action Painters” both galvanized and polarized mid-century American artists and critics. She addresses Rosenberg’s fallout with writers such as Clement Greenberg and Hilton Kramer, as well as a new generation of formalist thinkers who emerged in the 1960s.
