Lambert Family Lecture

This year’s Lambert Family Lecture brings together visual artist LaToya Ruby Frazier and filmmaker Julia Reichert to discuss the power of art to spur social and political change. Frazier’s exhibition The Last Cruze is currently on view in our galleries, and Reichert’s American Factory (2019) is part of the touring, Wex-organized retrospective Julia Reichert: 50 Years in Film. Onstage the pair will delve into topics stemming from their recent projects, including the state of labor at home and abroad, the evolution of collective action, and more.

Don’t miss free related screenings programmed in conjunction with this year’s lecture. The galleries will remain open until 7 pm on February 18 for you to enjoy.

Established in 2004 through the generosity of Bill and Sheila Lambert, the Lambert Family Lecture Series invites experts to explore global issues in art and contemporary culture with the region’s diverse audiences, often to illuminate the works on view in our galleries. To date the series has featured art historians, critics, and curators T. J. Clark, Douglas Crimp, Arthur Danto, Greil Marcus, Lynne Tillman, Diana Widmaier Picasso, and Robert Storr; filmmaker, author, and provocateur John Waters; and visual artists Carroll Dunham, Christian Marclay, Josiah McElheny, and Luc Tuymans.
