Lecture by CWAH Senior Scholar Ilene Fort

Ilene Fort will continue research and writing for her second book on Surrealist women artists in the U.S. The first study was part of a large international traveling exhibition and accompanying book entitled In Wonderland: The Surreal Adventures of Women Artists in Mexico and the United States. Her research will focus solely on the U.S. practitioners and will analyze why these women artists first adopted a narrative surrealist style, rather than exploring the avant-garde surrealist techniques and processes. Her research will also consider the scope of influence the surrealist women had on the next generation, namely the feminist and new age artists of the 1960s and 1970s.

Ilene Fort is the Senior Curator of American Art and The Gail and John Liebes Curator of American Art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA.

The CWAH Senior Scholar program brings scholars engaging in range of activities including research, collaborations, publications, and other scholarly projects with exemplary and sustained contributions in their field to Rutgers for a short campus residency during which time they research and give a lecture to Rutgers faculty and students.
