Other Events This Week

Helen Molesworth | In Conversation
Wed. Oct 24, 5:30pm
Martinos Auditorium, Granoff Center

154 Angell Street

Contemporary art curator and writer Helen Molesworth shares her views on art, life and art world politics. Most recently former chief curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles (2014-18) and the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston (2010-14), Molesworth is known for championing under-recognized artists. She has organized critically acclaimed solo exhibitions for Steve Locke, Kerry James Marshall, Catherine Opie, and Amy Sillman, among others. She is currently working on a book of essays about what art does. This presentation is the first event in the 2018-19 Warren and Allison Kanders Lecture Series. Presented by the Brown Arts Initiative. Registration required.

"How Secular is Art?" | Symposium
Fri. Oct 26, 5:30pm
Cogut Institute, Pembroke Hall
In South Asian art, the distinction between the “secular” and the “religious,” further complicated by the “spiritual,” has been fraught with contestations. In this symposium, art historians, historians, and philosophers examine the entanglement of art history’s categories and practices with the politics of the present. The symposium positions itself at the cusp of two dominant discourses: (i) the lingering Orientalist and nationalist projections that emphasize the “religious” nature of South Asian artistic traditions as against Western secularization; (ii) the assertion of the place of art within the modern secular life of nations, which posits the transitions of objects from earlier religious to new artistic denominations.

Gilles Tiberghien, “Paysagisme” | Lecture
Fri. Oct 26, 7pm
Martinos Auditorium, Granoff Center
154 Angell Street

Gilles Tiberghien presents the French concept of paysagisme, its main practitioners and relationship to environmental issues. Though the French word paysagisme is usually translated as “landscaping,” “landscape design,” or “landscape architecture,” the field covers much more than that. It incorporates a wide range of land-use issues, including urban planning, public spaces, land reclamation, and ecology, while it also has a pronounced aesthetic element in garden and park design, and overlaps with the important late 20th-century and contemporary art movement known as land art.
