Gallery Talk and Reception with art historian David J. Getsy, celebrating the release of his new book Abstract Bodies: Sixties Sculpture in the Expanded Field of Gender, published by Yale University Press. This book examines abstract sculpture in the 1960s that came to propose unconventional and open accounts of bodies, persons, and genders. Drawing on transgender and queer theory, David J. Getsy offers innovative and archivally rich new interpretations of artworks by and critical writing about four major artists – Dan Flavin (1933-1966), Nancy Grossman (b.1940), John Chamberlain (1927-2011), and David Smith (1906-1965). David J. Getsy is Goldabelle McComb Finn Distinguished Professor of Art History at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
