JadaTalks Presents: The Death of Postmodernism and the Birth of Metamodernism

During Paris Art Week, JadaTalks presents a conversation on The Death of Postmodernism and the Birth of MetamodernismPostmodernism brought forth a wealth of new, exciting ideas that carried us through the latter half of the 20th century. Taking into account the irony, skepticism, and post-structural concepts of Postmodernism, Metamodernism brings the conversation between the old and the new forward by considering concepts such as the structure of feeling and the idea of a new sincerity that goes beyond irony. Tune in on October 23, 2020 at Noon EST to hear from our guest speaker Suzanne Khalil, Ph.D. and co-founder of Jada, Jonatas during this online and live streaming art conversation.
