CSULB Art History Professor Nizan Shaked wins award from Smithsonian Museum

Posted on April 26, 2019 by School of Art

UntitledCSULB Art Historian Nizan Shaked was awarded the 31st annual Charles C. Eldredge Prize for Distinguished Scholarship in American Art for her book The Synthetic Proposition: Conceptualism and the Political Referent in Contemporary Art  from The Smithsonian American Art Museum. Shaked examines the impact of civil rights, Black Power and the student, feminist and sexual-liberty movements on conceptualism and its legacies in the United States between the late 1960s and the 1990s. The jurors wrote in a joint statement, “Shaked’s book demonstrates… a broad interdisciplinary approach that is shaped by modern and post-modern philosophy, linguistic theory and social history; the author posits a rethinking of the methodologies that have been employed to engage in discussions of minimalism and conceptual art.”

Congratulations Professor Shaked!!
