Four Lectures on Art and the Home, Lecture 4: A Domestic Destiny?

Thursday, May 7, 2020 ● 12 pm
1 pm

FREE for members
Webinar

This spring, the Albright-Knox is presenting a member-exclusive online series of conversations with Chief Curator Cathleen Chaffee. This fourth and final lecture in the series focuses on the fraught relationship between art and domestic space in the modern and contemporary era and how artists and curators have creatively sought to problematize or even repair the breach—with mixed results. This lecture features an extensive discussion of contemporary artists (including Lucas Samaras, Louise Lawler, Gregor Schneider, Haim Steinbach, John Armleder, and Marcel Broodthaers) who have chosen to take art’s display and the home as topics for their art.

About the Series

This spring, the Albright-Knox is presenting a member-exclusive online series of conversations with Chief Curator Cathleen Chaffee. At a moment when many of us are spending an unprecedented amount of time at home, uncover the way art has been lived with in domestic spaces, how museums have evolved from such private spaces and collections, and how modern artists have provocatively evoked the home or re-created domestic space as part of their work. Each hour-long lecture will be broadcast live, and you will have the opportunity to submit questions for discussion at the end. Learn More and View Schedule

With thanks to the Garret Club, Buffalo, where a version of these lectures was delivered in 2016.
