The Artist in the Museum
Reconsidering the Artist’s Eye
Wednesday, October 21, 2020, 7–8:30pm EDT
Contemporary artists are often invited by museums to create site-responsive work, or to inhabit the role of artist-as-curator. As museums begin the important work of reevaluating their display practices, what part can artists play in this process? Using Vera Lutter: Museum in the Camera—an exhibition at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art—as a starting point, this online panel discussion will bring together different perspectives on artist/museum collaborations. Artists Liz Glynn and Ken Gonzales-Day join Vera Lutter in conversation, moderated by Jennifer King, associate curator of contemporary art at LACMA. To register for the event, visit www.lacma.org.

Alternate Meanings in Film and Video
You’re only as young as the last time you changed your mind.
Gagosian is pleased to present Broadcast: Alternate Meanings in Film and Video, an online exhibition of artists’ films and videos viewable exclusively on gagosian.com. The exhibition will be organized into a series of “chapters,” each lasting two weeks. The first chapter begins on Tuesday, May 19, 2020.
Broadcast: Alternate Meanings in Film and Video employs the innate immediacy of time-based art to spark reflection on the here and now, taking the words of famed psychologist and countercultural icon Timothy Leary as its starting point.
