Set Andy Warhol's Brillo Box next to an appropriation of his work and an actual Brillo box and what would you see? Three radically different styles of the same object with very different meanings. Renowned philosopher and art critic Arthur Danto will consider how difficult it is to identify a style by visual criteria alone. Professor Danto is the Johnsonian Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at Columbia University and art critic for The Nation.
Cosponsored by the Department of Fine Arts of the Graduate School of Fine Arts, and the Departments of the History of Art and Philosophy.
