Description

From sculpture to film, performance, collage, watercolor, and printmaking, Wolf Vostell employed concrete in a number of exciting, challenging, and unexpected ways.

Join exhibition curators Christine Mehring (Professor and Chair, Department of Art History) and Diane Miliotes (Interim Curator of Modern Art and Design, Smart Museum of Art) as we explore the equally expressive and ambiguous connotations of this material in the Smart Museum’s special exhibition Vostell Concrete.

This event is part of Concrete Happenings at the University of Chicago, a collaborative series of public exhibitions, screenings, symposia, and other programs that mark the return of Wolf Vostell’s colossal Concrete Traffic (1970) to public view following a major conservation effort.
