Well we arrived for Allan's Lecture t the Fine Arts Building at the
University of Alberta only too find firetrucks and police surrounding the
building...ah is this a reaction to Anarchy=Black Block? or Bill C 36 ...
the mere sniff of anarchy and the state overreacts...no there was a fire in
an art studio so Allan had to reschedule his lecture Please see below....

Allan Antliff, "Hippolyte Havel and the Modernists of Revolt" 

Lecture Room 2-20, second floor, Fine Arts Building, University of Alberta

Hippolyte Havel was an anarchist-syndicalist and close friend of Emma
Goldman who supported the most innovative artists of his era.  This talk
will discuss Havel's activities in New York, where he edited two
art-related publications, The Revolutionary Almanac (1914) and Revolt (1916).

This talk commemorates the publication of

Anarchist Modernism: Art, Politics and the First American Avant-Garde
(University of Chicago Press, 2001)

The book will be available for purchase ($50.00)

Paul Avrich, author of The Russian Anarchists, Sacco and Vanzetti and
Anarchist Voices, writes:

"Allan Antliff's important book examines the work of anarchist artists and
critics, whose emphasis on freedom and innovation placed them in the
avant-garde of the twentieth century.  Among them were such figures as

whom anarchism was 'a natural philosophy of artists.'  Treating them and
others with intelligence and insight, Antliff brings a new voice to the
historical discourse, a voice which commands attention and carries

Linda Henderson, author of Duchamp in Context and The Fourth Dimension and
Non-Euclidian Geometry in Modern Art, writes

"An excellent chronicle of the impact of anarchism on early
twentieth-century art in America, Anarchist Modernism restores anarchism to
its rightful prominence as a crucial component of the culture of the time
and will now stand as the major consideration of the interconnectedness of
American art and anarchism in this period."
