Gavin Turk

Students in the art history survey course this week will enter the later 20th century with the hope of being able to reach into the 21st century. Picasso, Warhol, Rauschenberg, Chicago, Sayre, Riley — many names that are familiar to all in the artworld come from the modern era.

As a professor, though, it's always a challenge in any survey course to cover all of the content you are supposed to cover. As a student, it's a whirlwind of artists and maybe, if we're lucky, we'll spend 10 minutes on your favorite artist. If we're lucky!

To make that bridge between Dada and the 21st century, we'll watch a clip of the Charlie Rose show featuring an interview with Gavin Turk. Take a peek:
