Spring 2014 Semester

Motherwell's Mother: An Iconography in Abstraction 

308A Doe Library 
Jonathan Fineberg is professor emeritus of art history at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and the Department of Art History is sponsoring his talk on "Motherwell’s Mother: An Iconography in Abstraction." His research focuses on psychoanalysis, art history and criticism, child art and creativity. 

This talk is open to the public, and has been invited by Professor Davis to attend.

Modern Art at the Border of Mind and Brain: Desire Lines in the Mind

Geballe Room, 220 Stephens Hall
In this lecture, Jonathan Fineberg will make an evolutionary argument for art. He will discuss how images help us organize our thoughts in our conscious memory, and how humans have made images continuously for more than 30,000 years —six times longer than we’ve had written language. He will propose that we need images to organize social and psychological concepts of ourselves, and that we literally need them to develop the circuitry of our brains and our capacity for creative innovation.

This lecture will take place in Stephens Hall rather than Doe Library, and Professor Davis has invited members to attend this talk.

Basquiat Event
