Lambert Family Lecture
Robert Storr and Carroll Dunham in Conversation
Mon, Nov 3, 2014 7 PM

Explore the past, present, and future of figurative painting in this year’s Lambert Family Lecture, featuring celebrated contemporary artist Carroll Dunham and Robert Storr, guest curator of Transfigurations: Modern Masters from the Wexner Family Collection. The pair will discuss the legacy of the masters on view in the exhibition and the questions their works still pose for artists working today. Save the date for what’s sure to be an insightful and irreverent discussion on creative inheritance, rebellion, and continued artistic invention.

One of today’s most widely respected art historians, Robert Storr is professor and dean of the Yale University School of Art since 2006 and served as senior curator of painting and sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art, New York (1990–2002). Storr delivered the 2008 Lambert Family Lecture. Born in 1949 and based in New York, Dunham is internationally renowned for paintings (both abstract and figurative) that are equally informed by Paul Cézanne and cartoons. His work was recently featured in one of the center’s spring 2014 exhibitions, Comic Future.

The annual Lambert Family Lecture is made possible by generous support from the Lambert Family Lecture Series Endowment Fund, which promotes dialogue about global issues in art and contemporary culture.
