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 Zoe Leonard invites visitors to take part in a viewing in her installation on the fourth floor. This lecture will engage Leonard’s interest in the act of looking as not only an optical process, but as a temporal, spatial and social experience.
This hour-long public program will be followed by a 90-minute seminar for registered participants.
Both the program and seminar have reached capacity; online ticket purchases and seminar registration are currently closed.
Seminars with Artists is organized by the Education Department in collaboration with Gordon Hall, Director of the Center for Experimental Lectures.
