I am looking forward to participating in “The Duke Idea” with President Brodhead this coming Sunday, June 26, at Tate Britain in London. We’ll talk about “Global Universities, Global Art” and view Tate’s new exhibition “The Vorticists: Manifesto for a Modern World,” co-organized by the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke and co-curated by Duke Professor Mark Antliff. “The Vorticists” examines British avant-garde modernism and its connections to other European avant-gardes such as French Cubism and Italian Futurism in the early 20th century. Having just visited the Venice Biennale, an exhibition of global contemporary art, I look forward to reflecting with President Brodhead on the effects of globalism on art, culture, and education in the 21st century.
Nasher Museum Director Kim Rorschach is in London to participate in “The Duke Idea,” an ongoing series of alumni programs featuring Duke University President Brodhead in conversation with distinguished members of the Duke community.
