Seminars with Artists:
Susan Howe

Wed, May 14, 2014  6:30 PM

Location: Whitney Museum Second Floor (Kaufman Astoria Studios Film and Video 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 Susan Howe presents a lecture and seminar that engages her interest in the “telepathy of archives."

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.
