Joanna Robotham, the TMA's Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, reflects on the significance of artists Larry Bell and Jesús Rafael Soto — whose work pushed the boundaries of traditional painting and sculpture — in relation to global art trends in the 1950s and 1960s. The musueum's Vapor and Vibration is the first time the artists' work has been exhibited together in a show that explores light and space. A small reception precedes the lecture, which begins promptly at 2 p.m.
