Lucy Lippard is a critic, curator, activist, and writer known for groundbreaking scholarship on contemporary art, feminism, and place. In her talk, Lippard will consider the contextual and cultural implications of Ai Weiwei’s exhibition on Alcatraz Island. Her latest work Undermining: A Wild Ride through Land Use, Politics, and Art in the Changing West (The New Press, 2014) bridges many of her primary concerns in a spectacular book mirroring the vastness and complexity of the West itself.
