This presentation of the ArtNow! series at Tucson's MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art) features speaker Dr. Paul Ivey, a professor of Art History, teaching modern and contemporary art at University of Arizona. Dr Ivey will discuss "Junk Art, Dadaists, Surrealists, Nouveau Realists," and more. Dr. Ivey's research is on the built environments and compounds of alternative and esoteric American religious and communal groups. He is the author of "Radiance from Halcyon: A Utopian Experiment in Religion and Science and Prayers in Stone: Christian Science Architecture in the United States, 1894-1930." His research interests include metaphysical, Eastern, and esoteric religions in the United States that evolved during the Progressive Era. \ArtNow! gives audiences the opportunity to share thoughts on the wildly disparate practices and objects collectively known as “the art of our time.” Guests are encouraged to participate, share, and engage in this playful rendition upending the traditional art history lecture format.
