The Revolutionaries:Vanguards of the 1960’s, RDT’s symposium on artistic developments in the 60s, is tonight, September 28, at 7:00 pm in the Rose Wagner’s Black Box Theatre. Join scholars in discussing the revolutionary concepts and controversial art movements that expanded the frontiers of awareness, challenged the status quo, eliminated traditional artistic vision and virtuosity, and changed the historic notion of what an artist did.
Scholars representing Dance, Music, Visual Art, and Literature include:
Paul (Monty) Paret, Ph.D, Associate Professor Art History, University of Utah
Miguel Chuaqui, Ph.D, Music Theory and Composition, University of Utah
Sarah Hollenberg, Visiting Assistant Professor of Art History, University of Utah
Satu Hummasti, Associate Professor, Modern Dance Department, University of Utah
Alex Caldiero, Poet/Artist in Residence at Utah Valley University
Linda C. Smith, RDT’s Executive/Artistic Director
