Award-win­ning author, cura­tor, fem­i­nist, and activist Lucy R. Lip­pard is one of the world’s lead­ing voices on con­tem­po­rary art. Hailed for the breadth of her read­ing and the com­pre­hen­sive­ness with which she con­sid­ers the things that define place” (The New York Times), Lip­pard began her career as an art critic in 1962, when she began con­tribut­ing to pub­li­ca­tions such as Art Inter­na­tional and, later, Art­fo­rum. In the late 1970s, she became a found­ing mem­ber of the fem­i­nist jour­nal Here­sies. As a cura­tor, she gave audi­ence to min­i­mal and con­cep­tual art­works includ­ing texts, books, and posters. Lip­pard also sought to improve the lives of artists through the found­ing of the Art Work­ers’ Coali­tion, an advo­cacy group for artists’ rights. In this con­ver­sa­tion with Faith Wild­ing — mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary artist; rec­og­nized author­ity on fem­i­nist art the­ory and cyber fem­i­nism; and found­ing mem­ber of the Fem­i­nist Art Pro­gram at CalArts — Lip­pard dis­cusses her work and the cur­rent cre­ative-polit­i­cal cli­mate in the US.

Co-pre­sented by the Penny Stamps Speaker Series and Stamps Gallery, with sup­port from Amer­i­can Cul­ture, His­tory of Art, and the Uni­ver­sity of Michi­gan Museum of Art (UMMA).
