Join leading contemporary artists as they discuss their work, the creative process, and issues in contemporary art.
This conversation examines the international networks that developed among Conceptual artists in the 1960s and 1970s. Three such artists—Ger van Elk, Allen Ruppersberg, and Lawrence Weiner—focus the discussion on their respective cities of Amsterdam, Los Angeles, and New York, each of which served as a major center of artistic production at the time. Christophe Cherix, Curator, Department of Prints and Illustrated Books, The Museum of Modern Art, and organizer of the exhibition In & Out of Amsterdam: Travels in Conceptual Art, 1960–1976, moderates the discussion.
In conjunction with the exhibition In & Out of Amsterdam: Travels in Conceptual Art, 1960–1976
