Hear from art critic, curator, and activist Lucy Lippard, one of the most influential voices in contemporary art for over 50 years. Her many books include the seminal work Six Years: The Dematerialization of the Art Object (1973), on the then-emerging field of conceptual art; From the Center: Feminist Essays on Women’s Art (1976); Eva Hesse (1976); and The Lure of the Local: Sense of Place in a Multicentered Society (1997). Deeply engaged in progressive art and politics, Lippard helped to found Art Workers’ Coalition; a group that advocated for museum reform; the Heresies Collective, a coalition of feminist artists and thinkers; and, along with Sol LeWitt, Printed Matter, the world’s leading nonprofit organization dedicated to artists’ books and related publications. She speaks this afternoon as part of the Curatorial Studies Series, organized by Ohio State’s Departments of Art and History of Art.
Cosponsored by the Wexner Center for the Arts, Ohio State’s Department of History of Art’s Curatorial Practices Initiative, and Ohio State’s Department of Art’s Living Culture Initiative.
