Revolution of the Eye: Modern Art and the Birth of American Television

Revolution of the Eye: Modern Art and the Birth of American Television

February 16–June 11, 2017 This is the first exhibition to explore how avant-garde art influenced and shaped the look and content of network television in its formative years, from the late 1940s to the mid-1970s.  During this period, the pioneers of American television—many of them young, Jewish, and aesthetically adventurous—had adopted modernism as a source of inspiration. Revolution of the Eye looks at how the dynamic new medium, in its risk-taking and aesthetic experimentation, paralleled and embraced cutting-edge art and design.

Galleryx

Galleryx

September 27, 2014–June 15, 2015 Gallery x is a flexible, welcoming space at the center of the Museum that will serve as a hub for participatory experiments in interpretation during the Smart’s 40th anniversary exhibitions Carved, Cast, Crumpled (September 27–December 21, 2014) and Objects and Voices (February 12–June 14, 2015). As an academic art museum, research and teaching ground all of the Smart’s work, but many of the richest moments of shared discovery take place within closed circles—among the classrooms participating in our programs for schools on Chicago’s South Side, or as University students and faculty study and discuss works of art in our study room.
