Free as Gods: How the Jazz Age Reinvented Modernism
March 8 and 9 / Noon
Charles Riley II, Director of the Nassau County Museum of Art
Riley revisits Paris between 1918 and 1929, a period which “represents a remarkable convergence of genius,” including figures like Joyce, Fitzgerald, Picasso, and Diaghilev. Riley’s compelling view introduces lesser-known artists and the astounding collaborative environment which helped them push creative boundaries in ways that still resonate.
