classicisms
Classicism, as an aesthetic ideal, is often associated with a conventional set of rules founded on supposedly timeless notions such as “order,” “reason,” and “decorum.” As a result, it can be understood as rigid, outdated, or stodgy. But classicism is actually far from a stable concept — throughout history, it has given rise to more debate than consensus, and at times has been put to use for subversive ends. This exhibition traces the shifting parameters of classicism from antiquity to the early 20th century.
