The Institute for Historical Studies (IHS) presents a talk by Dr. Jane Ashton Sharp, associate professor of Twentieth Century Art, Russian and Soviet Art, and Nonconformist Art in the Department of Art History at Rutgers University, entitled "The Defense of Abstract Pianting in Moscow, after The Thaw".
Sharp is also the Research Curator of the Dodge Collection at the Zimmerli Art Museum. She teaches classes on Avant-Garde art movements, sculpture as a conceptual art, and Cubism/Futurism, among other subjects.
Her book, Russian Modernism Between East and West: Natalia Goncharova and the Moscow Avant-Garde, 1905-1914, is forthcoming from Cambridge University Press. Her current research involves art in the post-war Soviet period, late twentieth-century abstract panting in the former Soviet Union, and Russian avant-garde painting before the revolution.
