Outside the Walls: Art Beyond the Museum

5,000 Years of Contemporary Art Lecture Series

Saturday, January 8, 2011, 11:15 am

FREE for Gallery Members / $10 for non-members
Auditorium

With Associate Curator of Education Nancy Spector

When artists don't want to be slaves to the art market, they may choose to make art outside with untraditional and ephemeral materials. Artists discussed will include pioneers in this area—including Christo and Robert Smithson—and some of the more contemporary artists they have inspired—including Olafur Eliasson and Andy Goldsworthy.

The 5,000 Years of Contemporary Art Lecture Series continues through March 12, 2011. Throughout the series, Curator of Education Mariann Smith, Associate Curator of Education Nancy Spector, and guest speakers will use the Gallery's Collection and other selected works to tell the story of art from ancient times through today.

Doors for all lectures open at 11 am.
