Soul RebelsThis lecture explores the complex relationships of modernist clothing, jazz, popular music and new pictorial styles in British art from the end of the mid-1950's until the late 1960's. It draws on Crow’s monograph, The Long March of Pop (Yale, 2015).

He now teaches at The Institute of Fine Art at New York University. He is the author of numerous books on modern art and popular culture, including The Rise of the Sixties: American and European Art in the Era of Dissent (Harry N. Abrams, 1996) and Modern Art in the Common Culture (Yale University Press, 1996).
