Artist Talk: Arlene Shechet
Thursday, October 15, 2015
Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor
New York–based sculptor Arlene Shechet discusses her work with Catherine Morris, Sackler Family Curator for the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art. Working primarily in ceramics, Shechet fuses apparent contradictions—ordered and messy, elegant and ugly, earnest and humorous—in her art. She simultaneously honors and subverts decorative arts and craft traditions with her visceral, eccentric, and surreal forms that vacillate between abstraction and figuration.
Support for this event is provided by the Helene Zucker Seeman Memorial Exhibition Fund. The fund was established in 2010 in memory of beloved art historian Helene Zucker Seeman and supports a variety of exhibitions by recognized or emerging women artists presented by the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art.
Advance tickets are $16, which includes Museum admission, and are only available online. Keep in mind that, when you purchase tickets online, you’ll pay the full adult ticket price of $16, plus an online-ticketing fee. Since our Museum general admission is a suggested donation, if you purchase tickets at the Museum on the day of the program, you have the option of paying less than the full ticket price.
