Destruction in Art
This panel discussion with Yoko Ono and Raphael Montañez Ortiz, participants in the original 1966 Destruction in Art Symposium; artist Monica Bonvicini; and art historian Dario Gamboni will explore the ways in which artists have used destruction as a means of responding to cultural and social issues.
Spectacle of Destruction
Moderated by Robert Rosen, former dean of the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television, artists and scholars—including artist Ori Gersht; anthropologist Joe Masco, University of Chicago and Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton; and Kevin Rozario, Smith College—investigate the impetus and implications of society’s fascination with destructive spectacle.
