Lawrence Weschler: Seeing is Remembering
Tuesday, May 17
6:30 pm, Ring Auditorium

The author of Seeing Is Forgetting the Name of the Thing One Sees: Over Thirty Years of Conversations with Robert Irwin, arguably one of the most popular and insightful monographs about any contemporary artist, recalls the origins of that book, coming on forty years ago, and in particular explores the development of Irwin’s practice from the late 1950s through many of his later site-conditioned projects.
