Thursday | December 4 | 10 - 11:30am | Art Salon
Premiere Artist Talk with Lynda Benglis in conversation with Suzanne Weaver, Interim Director of ICA, Miami.
Lynda Benglis, whose innovative and vivid sculptures have been challenging the art establishment for half a century, will inaugurate this year's Conversations series. Her work is about expression of space, color, texture and substance - materials that have been widely explored in her remarkable career. But Benglis' art also thematizes sex, power and gender, as infamously stated with her advertisement in the November 1974 Artforum, which startled the 1970s art world and provoked unpredictable responses. Today, 40 years later, how far have we (not) progressed?
