Dr Stephen Moonie is an art historian. He specialises in the art and theory of the post-war United States, with a particular interest in the discourse of Modernist painting in the 1950s and 1960s. More broadly, he is interested in art writing, aesthetics and contemporary painting.
Previously, Stephen taught at the Department of History of Art at the University of Warwick. He completed his MA (Hons) at the University of St Andrews, and completed his MA (2005) and Ph.D. (2009) at the University of Essex.
His research interests focus upon post-war art and theory, especially Modernist painting and its criticism. He contributed to the catalogue for the exhibition at Tate St Ives and Warwick Arts Centre, The Indiscipline of Painting (2011).
Stephen is interested in art criticism and the problem of value judgments, and has written articles on the writing of British art critic Lawrence Alloway and the late critic/historian Leo Steinberg.
This lecture is part of Contemporary Art Club at the Hatton, to which all members of the Friends are invited.
