Stamps Gallery + Penny Stamps Series Present: Lucy Lippard & Faith Wilding: Then & Now

October 8, 2019 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
University of Michigan Museum of Art, Helmut Stern Auditorium, 525 S State St, Ann Arbor MI

Award-winning author, curator, feminist, and activist Lucy R. Lippard is one of the world’s leading voices on contemporary art. Hailed for “the breadth of her reading and the comprehensiveness with which she considers the things that define place” (The New York Times), Lippard began her career as an art critic in 1962, when she began contributing to publications such as Art International and, later, Artforum. In the late 1970s, she became a founding member of the feminist journal Heresies. As a curator, she gave audience to minimal and conceptual artworks including texts, books, and posters. Lippard also sought to improve the lives of artists through the founding of the Art Workers’ Coalition, an advocacy group for artists’ rights. In this conversation with Faith Wilding — multidisciplinary artist; recognized authority on feminist art theory and cyber feminism; and founding member of the Feminist Art Program at CalArts — Lippard discusses her work and the current creative-political climate in the US.

This event is part of the Feminist Futures: Art, Design & Activism Series organized by Stamps Gallery and co-sponsored by the Center for the Education of Women+ (CEW+) with support from the Institute for Research on Women & Gender (IRWG). Feminist Futures: Art, Design and Activism is an ongoing event series exploring the role of feminism in art, design, scholarship, and politics. The series brings together multigenerational artists and thinkers in contemporary art, design, art history, and related fields who have shaped, and are shaping, current discourses on gender and the fight for equality.

Co-presented by the Penny Stamps Speaker Series and Stamps Gallery, with support from American Culture, History of Art, and the University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA).
