James Meyer, curator in the Department of Modern Art at the National Gallery, presents this year’s Carol Given Winston Lecture, focusing on material from his new book, The Art of Return. In this book, Meyer turns to art criticism, theory, memoir, and fiction to examine the continual fascination with the 1960s, a decade that has captured our collective cultural imagination.
