Hanes lecture features New Museum curator

The Hanes Visiting Artist Lecture Series will continue with Lauren Cornell, New Museum curator, on Jan. 22 at 6 p.m. in the Hanes Art Center, room 121.

The lecture is free and open to the public.

Cornell will be co-curating the 2015 Generational Triennial with video artist Ryan Trecartin. As a curator, she has frequently explored the intersection of new technology and the Internet, most especially with the New Museum’s 2010 group show “Free,” which looked at  how being online has changed the way artists work and think.

She also led the development of the annual Seven on Seven conference series, which pairs technological innovators with visual artists for collaborative projects, as well as organized performances, lectures, and other events at the museum through the monthly “New Silent” series.  Cornell is the former executive director (and a current board member) of Rhizome, an online forum dedicated to the creation, presentation, preservation, and critique of emerging artistic practices that engage technology.

An endowment established in 1983 through the generosity of Nancy and Robin Hanes supports the art department’s Visiting Artist Series. This important program brings both established and emerging artists to campus to discuss their work in public lectures and to offer individual critiques to our M.F.A. students.
