The MAK Center is excited to host a free form, ten-session seminar with art historian Thierry de Duve on the passage from the Fine Arts system to the contemporary art world, which de Duve calls the "Art-in-General" system. Each lecture will focus on a particular episode in this passage and its theoretical interpretation, ranging from the 19th century French Salon to the birth and death of 'non-art', or from theories of the avant-garde to opposing readings of minimal art.
The MAK Center for Art & Architecture at the Schindler House is located at 835 N. Kings Road in West Hollywood. Public hours are Wednesday through Sunday, 11 AM-6 PM. Regular admission is $7/$17 with the guidebook, Schindler By MAK; students and seniors, $6/$16 with book; free for Friends of the MAK Center and on Fridays, 4-6 PM. Parking is available at the public structure at the northeast corner of Kings Road and Santa Monica Boulevard.
