Éva Forgács
Éva Forgács is an art historian, curator, and art critic. She relocated from her native Hungary to Los Angeles in 1993. Presently, she teaches at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. While in Hungary, she was close to the neo-avant-garde and the nascent conceptual art of the 1970s, particularly Miklós Erdély. One of her main interests was the interconnection between art and politics, and the comparison/contrast between the classic avant-garde and the then present. She was curator of “Creating Freedom: From Post-Revolutionary to Post-Communist Art in Hungary” at Sherman Gallery, Boston University (November 3–December 11, 2009). Forgács will present a lecture entitled “Miklós Erdély, Science Fiction, and Freedom.”
