Curator of Contemporary Art and Design
An Ecstatic Introduction: Laura Mott on Practice and Exhibitions
Cranbrook Art Museum’s new Curator of Contemporary Art and Design, Laura Mott, will speak about her curatorial methodology, previous exhibitions, and current research. Her lecture in deSalle Auditorium will be followed by a more informal conversation with her and a cash bar in the Hartmann Gallery.
Cranbrook Art Museum has launched an ambitious schedule of events, all held in conjunction with their current exhibitions: My Brain Is in my Inkstand: Drawing as Thinking and Process, The Islands of Benoît Mandelbrot: Fractals, Chaos, and the Materiality of Thinking and Waylande Gregory: Art Deco Ceramics and the Atomic Impulse.
Each event will highlight a particular element from the exhibitions – we will examine theories behind the work, talk with performers whose work is featured, and for our young visitors – even create works of art inspired by the exhibitions.
All lectures are held in Cranbrook Art Museum’s deSalle Auditorium and are free to ArtMembers and students with identification. For the general public, they are included with Museum admission. For evening events, the Museum galleries will be open one hour prior to each event. Parking is available in the Cranbrook Art Museum parking lot and in the parking deck next to the Institute of Science.
