Revolution of the Eye: Modern Art and the Birth of American Television
Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture

An Opening Reception will be held on Thursday, September 29, 5 to 7 p.m., and the exhibition will open for regular hours on Friday, September 30.

Revolution of the Eye: Modern Art and the Birth of American Television is the first exhibition to explore how avant-garde art influenced and shaped the look and content of network television in its formative years, from the late 1940s to the mid-1970s. During this period, the pioneers of American television — many of them young, Jewish, and aesthetically adventurous — had adopted modernism as a source of inspiration. Revolution of the Eye looks at how the dynamic new medium, in its risk-taking and aesthetic experimentation, paralleled and embraced cutting-edge art and design.
