30th Annual Hilla Rebay Lecture: Irit Rogoff
Wednesday, April 4, 6:30pm
A writer, teacher, curator, and organizer, Irit Rogoff works at the intersection of contemporary art, critical theory, and emergent political manifestations. In this lecture, she explores the “research turn” within art and curating—how research has moved from being in contextual activity that grounds the production and exhibition of art to a mode of inhabiting the art world in its own right. In the Visual Cultures Department at Goldsmiths, University of London, Rogoff heads the Curatorial/Knowledge PhD program and the Global Arts MA program. A reception follows.

Free. RSVP for updates. Seating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis beginning 30 minutes before the event.

The Hilla Rebay Lecture brings distinguished scholars to the Guggenheim Museum to examine significant issues in the theory, criticism, and history of art.

Eighth Annual Robert Rosenblum Lecture: 
Terry Winters in Conversation with Lisa Phillips

Tuesday, April 17, 6:30pm
Artist Terry Winters and Lisa Phillips, Toby Devan Lewis Director of the New Museum, discuss the provocations and scholarship of Robert Rosenblum, whose embrace of various “tastes” and whose inclusive vision have been integral to both of their practices. The conversation will take Rosenblum’s provocative positions as starting points to look at his canon-shifting legacy, painting’s possibilities today, and Winters’s work within the expanded field. A reception follows.

Free. RSVP for updates. Seating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis beginning 30 minutes before the event.

The Annual Robert Rosenblum Lecture honors the wide-ranging career of Robert Rosenblum (1927–2006), former Guggenheim Swid Curator of 20th-Century Art, and Henry Ittleson, Jr. Professor of Modern European Art, New York University.
