Amanda Croft Lecture Series

Time/Date - 11:00 - 12:00, Tue 2 May 2017 - Tue 6 Jun 2017

From Ashcans to Soup Cans - A six week Lecture Series.

American artists working from the Roaring Twenties to the Swinging Sixties engaged with both the popular culture of the American Scene and the Modernism of the European avant-garde.  From Grant Wood to Andy Warhol and Georgia O’Keefe to Jackson Pollock, this short series of talks will examine the development of America art in the early twentieth century.


‘Ashcans to Soup Cans’ links with our exhibition ‘International Ireland’. 20th century American art is also the theme for current exhibitions in the Royal Academy and British Museum.
