Pressly Forum: Dr. Max Rosenberg, "Work-in-Progress: The Pop Moment of Self-Portraiture in Postwar American Art"

Michelle Smith Collaboratory for Visual Culture
Wednesday, October 5, 2016 - 11:30 to 13:00
Warhol, Double Self-Portrait, 1966-67, Detroit Institute of Arts

Dr. Max Rosenberg, 2016-2017 Fellow in Modern and Contemporary Art History at the Phillips Collection, will deliver his talk, which is expanded from a brief digression in his current book project on the early history of Documenta and West Germany. In this talk. which is a work in progress, Dr. Rosenberg attempts to continue to understand art as a reflection of its maker at the very moment that the authorial voice was being disputed. He very much looks forward to and welcomes the feedback of those in attendance. The Pressly Forum is named in honor of its founder, Bill Pressly, a Professor in the Department of Art History and Archaeology for 25 years. Bill began the forum, originally known as the "Faculty Forum," in 2009 with the goal of fostering community within the department by bringing faculty together in an informal setting to share their current work with colleagues. This particular talk expands the bounds of our community to include that of the Phillips Collection, with whom the University of Maryland is partnering, and we look forward to many such engagments in the future. A light lunch will be available at 11:30 and the lecture will begin at noon.
