In conjunction withthe exhibition Lee Ufan: Marking Infinity, this daylong symposium asks how the proclamation of the “end” of the art object, a statement that was made in a startling number of locations around the world ca. 1970, demonstrated the end of both aesthetic and political modernity, and the advent of a decentered globalism characterized more by crisis than by revolution. Reception and exhibition viewing follows.Organized by David Joselit, Yale University, and Alexandra Munroe, Samsung Senior Curator, Asian Art.
