On April 13th and 14th, as well as the 20th and 21st, CEDEI will offer a workshop on "Twentieth Century American Art."  The workshop will be held at the CEDEI Foundation's main building (Gran Colombia 11-02 and General Torres).

The workshops will be given from 18:00 to 20:00. It includes a review of the past to determine the influence of the previous century and its contribution to the development of art in America. Al Jennings will be the instructor of the workshop, which will be offered in English, along with a summary in Spanish.

Al Jennings is a United States-born artist who studied curatorial and art auction business studies at Sotheby's in London, England. He has a bachelor's degree in art history and a master's in art education. His studies were carried out in New York and London. He worked as deputy director of the Department of Art Education at City College of New York. He has worked for different galleries and private clients as an art buyer.

The workshop will include an analysis of art in the twentieth century, which is marked by a change in the mentality of the artists of that time; and changes in the economy and society. Knowing the facts of the previous century, will allow participants to analyze the art, artists, and movements, as well as local and global influences.

Another aspect that will be discussed is the motivation of the artist in the United States, especially after World War II. In this context the development of fine arts, decorative arts, architecture, and photography will be analyzed. The conference will also address the presence of women in art, photography, and architecture.

Registrations for this workshop are now open and will be received until April 11th in CEDEI's central facilities at Gran Colombia 11-02 y General Torres.
