Berlind Symposium: Artist Talk by Lee Quiñones
September 15 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
The 27th Annual Helen Clark Berlind Symposium is held in conjunction with the 107th Annual Exhibition, “Zeitgeist: The Art Scene of Teenage Basquiat.” One of several artists to gain fame from the New York City Subway graffiti movement, Quiñones’ style is rooted in popular culture, often with political messages, along with Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Quiñones was one of the innovators of New York’s street-art movement and is considered one of the most influential artists to emerge from the graffiti era.
The Berlind Symposium was established on the occasion of the Maier Museum of Art’s 80th Annual Exhibition of Contemporary Art, by friends and family of Helen Clark Berlind ’58 to honor her memory. The event has expanded the educational impact of the Annual Exhibition every year since, hosting scholars and artists to discuss issues relevant to each Exhibition.
