Re: Lorraine O’Grady: Both/And, A Lecture by Catherine Morris on Lorraine O'GradyOur Lorraine O’Grady research season opens with an overview of the artist’s career by Brooklyn Museum curator Catherine Morris. Re: Lorraine O’Grady: Both/And examines the organizing themes around O’Grady’s first monographic exhibition, which was on view at the Brooklyn Museum from March through July 2021. Beginning with her intersectional engagement with art world feminism in the early 1980s, the lecture is structured around a discussion of O’Grady’s critical interventions into the western art historical canon, culminating in her most recent project Announcement of a New Persona (Performances to Come!).
Catherine Morris is the Senior Curator for the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum where, since 2009, she has curated and co-curated numerous exhibitions including most recently, Lorraine O’Grady: Both/And. Other projects include We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women, 1965-1985; Judith Scott-Bound and Unbound; and Materializing Six Years: Lucy R. Lippard and the Emergence of Conceptual Art. Upcoming collaborative projects include a monographic exhibition, Elizabeth Catlett: A Revolutionary Artist and All That It Implies, as well a multi-part project addressing mass incarceration and the visual arts.
This is the first event in our year-long season dedicated to thinking about our contemporary moment through the lens of Lorraine O’Grady's work.
