"Times out of Joint: or, When Arab Art Will Have Been Modern" Hannah Feldman, Associate Professor of Art History, Northwestern University
This talk performs a double investigation of historiographic accounts of modern and contemporary art made in North Africa and the Middle East. On the one hand, it considers several artists whose work might be said to operate in the temporality provided by the grammatical "future perfect." On the other hand, it historicizes the role of the contemporary art critic.
