(At Home) On Art and Representation: Artist Talk With Riva Lehrer
April 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC+0
Wednesday, April 7; 7 p.m. ET
Free, registration required for Zoom. Live stream also available on YouTube and Facebook Live.
Riva Lehrer will join Hirshhorn assistant curator Sandy Guttman to explore the intersection of art and representation through her powerful portraits and to discuss and read from her 2020 memoir, Golem Girl. Representations of historically marginalized people across the media, the arts and society tend to be few and far between—a resounding absence that the artist, writer and curator Lehrer has spent her artistic practice rectifying. Building on her own experiences, Lehrer’s bodies of work are informed by the rich disability and LGBTQIA+ communities to which she belongs while steeped in the art historical tradition of portraiture.
