Kevin Hatch has been awarded a Short-Term Visitor Fellowship by the Smithsonian American Art Museum for fall 2017. The fellowship will allow him to spend two weeks this coming October in residence at the museum in Washington, D.C., working with its archival collections. The fellowship supports Hatch’s research proposal, “Intimacy and Exchange: Bay Area Art in the 1950s.”
On July 28, Kevin Hatch delivered the paper “‘Where madness lies’: Bruce Conner, Timothy Leary, and The Psychedelic Experience” at the Summer of Love Conference 2017. The conference was held in recognition of the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love in San Francisco. Northwestern University’s Center for Civic Engagement and the California Historical Society hosted the three-day, interdisciplinary academic conference to celebrate and reexamine the Summer of Love and its associated events, contexts, and implications. The conference took place at Northwestern University’s San Francisco campus.
