Book launch for Pamela M. Lee's publication, Forgetting the Art World published by MIT Press on Saturday October 6th, 2012 at 3pm.
In Forgetting the Art World, Pamela M. Lee inquires "how to confront the relation between globalization and contemporary art when we are both object of, and agent for, such processes." Lee includes essays on the work of art’s mattering and materialization in a globalized world, with close readings of works by Takahashi Murakami, Andreas Gursky, Thomas Hirschhorn, and others. Lee is Professor of Art History at Stanford University and the author of Object to Be Destroyed: The Work of Gordon Matta-Clark and Chronophobia: On Time in the Art of the 1960s, both published by the MIT Press. For the book launch, Lee discusses her new book joined by Apsara DiQuinzio, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Berkeley Art Museum.
