Curator Helen Molesworth comes to Lesley June 25 from 7-9 p.m. in U-Hall.
Visiting artists, writers, curators, art historians and critics present their work and ideas during a public lecture series sponsored by the MFA Visual Arts program during each residency.
These events are free to the public and accessible by MBTA Red Line to Porter Square.
Molesworth has been the Chief Curator at institutions such as the Wexner Center for the Arts, ICA Boston, and MOCA Los Angeles. In an Art Forum essay Molesworth writes, “Holding is an act that implies weight and assistance, an act of touching and proximity, a gesture of binding rather than division. Holding is also temporary. No one holds forever. Holding is tiring. Holding is provisional.”
The Art Talks Lecture Series is sponsored by the College of Art and Design MFA in Visual Arts program and the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
