2014 Leonard and Merle Nelson Social Justice Fund Lecture

Lucy Lippard: Undermining

Hear internationally known art writer, social activist, and curator Lucy Lippard talk about her life and work. Lippard began her career as an art writer in 1962 by contributing to publications such as Art International and, later, Artforum. Since 1966, Lippard has published 23 books on feminism, art, politics, and multiculturalism, and was also a founding member of the feminist journal Heresies (1977). Most of her recent books reflect on our sense of history, land use, and Native American art. A summer resident of Georgetown, Maine, her book Lure of the Local (1998), addresses issues of perceptions of nature, our sense of place, and how landscape affects us here in Maine. A book signing will follow the lecture.
