Seminars with Artists:
Amy Sillman

Thurs, May 22, 2014  6:30 PM

Location: Robert J. Hurst Family Gallery (Lower Gallery)

From 1969 to 2004, the Whitney’s Seminars with Artists program offered notable American artists the opportunity to discuss their practices informally with an intimate and diverse audience. This spring, the Whitney Education Department is pleased to collaborate with the Center for Experimental Lectures to re-launch and re-imagine this historic series by inviting Biennial artists to present public lectures that creatively explore the research and concepts underpinning their work. 

This evening, Biennial artist Amy Sillman presents a lecture and seminar that engages her interest in the materiality of color. Her lecture “Color As Material” will be followed by a seminar jointly led with Cameron Martin, who co-founded a color-theory reading group with Sillman which was active from 2011 to 2014.

Seminars with Artists is organized by the Education Department in collaboration with Gordon Hall, Director of the Center for Experimental Lectures.

This hour-long public program will be followed by a 90-minute seminar for registered participants. The seminar is fully registered.

Lecture: $8 general admission; $6 senior citizens and students. This program is free for members but advance registration is required by emailing memberinfo@whitney.org with your name and membership number.
