In past years Art Santa Fe has brought engaging, seminal figures into town as keynote speakers at the international art fair, including critic Barbara Rose, writer Lawrence Weschler, and even Robert King Wittman, former head of the FBI’s Art Crime Team. This year Art Santa Fe welcomes James Meyer, associate curator of modern art at the National Gallery of Art and professor of art history at Johns Hopkins University, to the New Mexico Museum of Art on Saturday, July 12. Meyer, the author of Minimalism: Art and Polemics in the Sixties, a comprehensive survey of an art movement that began in the 1960s, returns to the era of Watergate, the Vietnam War, and counterculture movements in his forthcoming book, Return to the Sixties: On the Meaning of the Sixties in Art and Culture. “Children of the Sixties,” his keynote lecture, delves into the past from the standpoint of the present, discussing the legacy of an era that still captivates half a century later. Pasatiempo talked with Meyer about his lecture and new book.
