Voices in Contemporary Art: Lucy Lippard

Tue Jun 20 2017, 07:00 PM - 08:00 PM

Missoula Art Museum (MAM) is proud to present Lucy Lippard on "Undermining" as part of MAM's Lecture Series, Voices in Contemporary Art. This event takes place at The Public House; it is free for MAM members and students, $5 suggested donation for the public. Lippard offers a poignant examination of the relationship between art, politics and the American environment following the publication of her most recent book, "Undermining."

Lippard is an internationally known writer, art critic, activist, and curator. She is credited with being among the first to recognize the concept of dematerialization at work in conceptual art and an early champion of feminist art. She helped found the Art Workers’ Coalition, an art activist’s lobbying group; Printed Matter, a nonprofit dedicated to artists’ books and publications by artists; and the feminist journal Heresies. She has over two dozen publications, including Changing: Essays in Art Criticism (1971), From the Center: Feminist Essays on Women’s Art (1976), Mixed Blessings: New Art in a Multicultural America (1990), The Lure of the Local (1997), On the Beaten Track: Tourism, Art, and Place (1999), and recently, Undermining (2014).
