Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor
Matthew Higgs, co-curator of Judith Scott—Bound and Unbound, moderates a discussion about the recent growth in curatorial approaches to self-taught artists that focus on relationships between creativity and disability. Panelists include Lynne Cooke, Senior Curator, Special Projects in Modern Art, National Gallery of Art; Massimiliano Gioni, Artistic Director, New Museum; and Lawrence Rinder, Director, University of California, Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive. The panel considers the issues raised by recent exhibitions and projects that have juxtaposed the work of self-taught and so-called "outsider" artists with other forms of contemporary art.
