Red Sword-White Canvas: The Past, Present, and Future of the Avant-Garde and Avant-Garde Aesthetics
Name: Ben Read
Majors: Philosophy and Art History
Advisors: John Rudisill and John Siewert
This book examines and critiques various elements surrounding the existence of a postmodern avant-garde, the nature of the historical dialectic of the avant-garde, and the ultimate role which conflict plays in the formation of these artistic and aesthetic dimensions. It subsequently answers the challenges raised by these discoveries through the positing of a reformulated aesthetic expressionism. This project discusses issues currently facing the art world, and therefore is of pertinence to our time. I wish to continue an examination of these topics in my Graduate work and beyond.

Congratulations again, Ben! I’m impressed that you’ve somehow compressed 250+ pages into 8 PowerPoint slides. You should take great pride in all that you’ve accomplished with I.S., and in your years at Wooster!
Wow, Ben! What a fascinating and provocative thesis. Your project represents a thoughtful, meaningful, and timely contribution to the discipline – congratulations on this stellar work!
