In a twist on the traditional artist talk, Louise Lawler has periodically presented a seven-minute slideshow related to her sound installation Birdcalls (1972/1981). In conjunction with the exhibition Louise Lawler: WHY PICTURES NOW, Lawler will present her slide show, after which contemporary artists Allan McCollum, Matt Mullican, R. H. Quaytman, Yvonne Rainer, Cameron Rowland, and novelist Lynne Tillman will each present their own seven-minute “response.” The program will conclude with questions from the audience.

This event will be live-streamed.

This event accompanies Louise Lawler: WHY PICTURES NOW.
