What you'll learn in this art history class:

The collective trauma of World War I not only reshaped the world’s map and redefined the nature of war, it also fundamentally transformed art. Join a group of leading scholars to investigate new modes of literature, painting, and music that arose in response to the war and formed a cornerstone of 20th-century modernism. Inspired by our upcoming exhibition, Posters and Patriotism: Selling World War I in New York (opens April 5th), panelist will also consider how traditional ideas about Western art were yet another casualty of the war.

All ticket proceeds support programming at The Museum of the City of New York.
