      OLLI at UVM Fleming Museum Multi-Exhibitions

      Enjoy a private tour of the Fleming Museums’ two special exhibitions, Let’s Have a Ball: Wood Gaylor and the New York Art Scene and Warp: War Rugs of Afghanistan. Let’s Have a Ball recovers a lost chapter in the post-Armory Show American art world, when groups of artists – some well-known, others forgotten – collaborated to promote the cause of modern art. Gaylor’s colorful paintings of art auctions, costume balls, and riotous sketching sessions serve as windows into the heady, sometimes goofy world of modernist artists who knew how to throw a party. Warp: War Rugs of Afghanistan may seem a world away, but the two exhibitions share an interest in telling new narratives about modernism: these striking, sometimes disturbing rugs made by Afghan artisans were originally inspired by Italian Futurist designs to comment on the proliferation of war images in global media, and they soon became collectors’ items.
