Debra Bricker Balken, December 13, 2012

December 13th , 7 pm
“Harold Rosenberg and the Twilight of the Intellectuals”
SVA Theatre, 333 West 23rd street, NYC


Independent writer and curator Debra Bricker Balken will discuss some of the ways in which Harold Rosenberg’s key essay, “The American Action Painters,” both galvanized and polarized mid-century American artists and critics.   Her talk will address, in particular, Rosenberg’s fallout with writers such as Clement Greenberg and Hilton Kramer, as well as a new generation of formalist thinkers who emerged in the 1960s.
