Symposium: "Art in a Global Context"
Thursday, September 28, 2006
Keynote Address

Introduction: Ned Rifkin, Undersecretary for Art, Smithsonian Institution

Presenter: Adam Gopnik, The New Yorker, "Santayana's Boomerang and Barr's Torpedo: On the Unity of American Art"

This three-day symposium looked at American art in a global context—from circum-Atlantic migrations in the eighteenth century to European training and travel in the late nineteenth century; from the export of U.S. culture and media in the twentieth century to the impact of immigration and globalization on the nation's visual arts in the new millennium.
