Visiting Artists Lecture -Richard Meyer

Great opportunity for all art historians…. please join us!

Hi everyone We are excited to begin out Visiting Artists Lecture series for the Spring semester. Please join us for a lecture by Richard Meyer this Tuesday Feb 8 at 3:30 pm, Boyland Hall room 5313. Richard Meyer is Associate Professor of Art History and Fine Arts at the University of Southern California, where he also directs The Contemporary Project, a multi-year initiative to forge new dialogues between the academy and the art world. He is the author of Outlaw Representation: Censorship and Homosexuality in Twentieth-Century American Art which was awarded the Charles C. Eldredge Prize for Outstanding Scholarship in American Art from the Smithsonian American Art Museum. With Anthony W. Lee, he co-authored Weegee and Naked City and in collaboration with the artist/crtic Catherine Lord, he recently completed Art and Queer Culture, 1885-present, an illustrated survey forthcoming from Phaidon Press. Meyer is now completing a short history of the idea of contemporary art in America beginning in the late 1920s titled What was Contemporary Art? He will also be at Cooper Union School of art this Friday Feb 4 at 6:30 pm. This lecture will focus on the limits and inequities of globalization within the arena of contemporary art. In doing so, it addresses an ostensibly marginal episode in the international reception of the work of Andy Warhol.
