MoMA Series Part III: Judd

(Please note: Events at the Lewis Davis Pavilion are temporarily cancelled – at present March 11-22.)
The final seminar in our three part series: Educator and Director of Access and Community Programs, Laura Luis Worden, a graduate of Yale University with a Masters in Art History and Religion will give an illustrated lecture on the Donald Judd Exhibit, at the MoMA from March 1 – July 11, 2020.

“I had always considered my work another activity of some kind,” remarked artist Donald Judd (1928–1994). “I certainly didn’t think I was making sculpture.”

One of the foremost sculptors of our time, Judd refused this designation and other attempts to label his art: his revolutionary approach to form, materials, working methods, and display went beyond the set of existing terms in mid-century New York.

His work, in turn, changed the language of modern sculpture. Bringing together sculpture, painting, drawing, and rarely seen works from throughout Judd’s career, Judd is the first US retrospective in over 30 years to explore this artist’s remarkable vision.

MoMA Series Part II: Dorothea Lange: Words & Pictures

The second in our three part series: Educator and Director of Access and Community Programs, Laura Luis Worden, a graduate of Yale University with a Masters in Art History and Religion will give an illustrated lecture on the Dorothea Lange Exhibit, at the MoMA from February 9 – May 9, 2020.

Toward the end of her life, Dorothea Lange (1895–1965) reflected, “All photographs—not only those that are so called ‘documentary’…can be fortified by words.”

A committed social observer, Lange paid sharp attention to the human condition, conveying stories of everyday life through her photographs and the voices they drew in. Dorothea Lange: Words & Pictures, the first major MoMA exhibition of Lange’s in 50 years, brings iconic works from the collection together with less seen photographs—from early street photography to projects on criminal justice reform.

The work’s complex relationships to words show Lange’s interest in art’s power to deliver public awareness and to connect to intimate narratives in the world.
