(At Home) On Art and Exploration: Artist Talk With Michelle Stuart
March 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC+0
Wednesday, March 24; 7 p.m. ET
Free, registration required for Zoom. Live stream also available on YouTube and Facebook Live.
Michelle Stuart will join Hirshhorn assistant curator Betsy Johnson to discuss her extensive practice exploring the role that landscape and natural materials play in shaping personal and collective memory. Often characterized as an artist-explorer, Stuart is internationally recognized as a pioneer of land art, offering a perspective grounded in personal experience, travel, curiosity and wonder. Stuart’s work stands apart from that of other land artists of her generation in its anti-monumentality. Rather than carving into the earth or building upon it, she adopted a philosophy of treading lightly and leaving few permanent traces in the landscape.
