In collaboration with KU’s international area studies centers, the Spencer Museum of Art presents images of revolution in the 20th century in an installation titled Changing the World: Images of Revolution, on view February 12—March 1 in the Museum’s third-floor Teaching Gallery.These works, all drawn from the Spencer’s renowned collection, depict political, social, and cultural revolutions in the 20th century, and appear in conjunction with the interdisciplinary KU topic entitled "Changing the World: The Meanings of Revolution." This theme is the subject of inquiry during the spring of 2009 for KU’s international area studies centers: the Center for East Asian Studies; the Center of Latin American Studies; the Kansas African Studies Center; and the Center for Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies, as part of a year-long program devoted to "protest and revolution."Related events include an artist’s talk by noted Moscow conceptual artist Vitaly Komar on “Images of Revolution,” February 26 at 5:30 PM in the SMA Auditorium; a forum entitled “What does ‘Revolution’ Mean in Our Time? Society, the Environment, and the Arts,” February 27 at 3 PM at The Commons in Spooner Hall; and a Teacher Workshop on “Art, Music and Revolution,” February 28 at 8:30 AM in the SMA Galleries & Reception Room (enrollment required).

This event was posted Feb. 4, 2009 and last updated Sept. 16, 2014
