Art historian Michele Corriel will lecture about the two first-generation Montana modernist artists and how their work impacted contemporary art in the Big Sky state.
Corriel’s thesis for a doctorate in American Studies at Montana State University documents the modernist art movement in Montana. Corriel will look at the concept of place in context of slides of work by Stockton and DeWeese, who she said were overlooked artists working in the 1950s, and discuss how DeWeese and Stockton’s work helped change the way Montana artists thought about their role in a postwar society.
Corriel’s lecture is presented by the Bozeman Art Museum, a nonprofit organization dedicated to art education and outreach.
A reception will follow.
