Art, Ideas, & Politics Book Club at UMMA

UMMA and Literati Bookstore invite you to join us for the Art, Ideas, & Politics Book Club to dig into the topics and ideas surrounding the UMMA exhibition Abstraction, Color, and Politics in the Early 1970s. The Art, Ideas, & Politics Book Club, guided by Literati Bookstore's Creative Programs Manager, Gina Balibrera Amyx, will meet every other month on the second Thursday, 12-1 p.m. in the exhibition gallery on the 2nd floor of the Museum. Pick and choose or come to all of them.

In July, we will read the novel Flamethrowers by Rachel Kushner. Flamethrowers narrates the story of Reno, a female “Land Artist” who arrives in the1970s conceptual art movement in NY. This finalist for the 2013 National Book Award explores ideas surrounding conceptual art, meaning, performance, and authenticity in art and life.

Books will be available for sale at Literati Bookstore as well as after book club meetings at UMMA, at a 15% book club discount.
