Balken on Harold Rosenberg & the American Art Establishment

Debra Balken (Lecturer, Graduate Studies) will be giving a lecture at University of Texas, Austin, February 26, 2014.

In her lecture, on Harold Rosenberg and the American Art Establishment, she will 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. Her talk will address, in particular, 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.
