Activism and Political Art

“The spirit of people, when you work with people and collaborating with people, that gives you hope.” -Lucy R. Lippard.

On October 19th, the Dairy Center for the Arts in Boulder hosted Lucy R. Lippard for a talk about Activism and Political Art. as a part of their History of Visual Arts in Boulder (HOVAB) series. Lippard is an internationally renowned writer and activist who has ties to the Boulder area as a visiting professor who spent a semester every year for nine years at the University of Colorado.

“The first part of it is just kind of nostalgia, and then I get off on contemporary activism…what we should be doing and how we should be changing the world.”

KGNU’s Elena Klaver spent a few minutes talking about Lippard’s presentation and her history in the area. Lippard led many different activism efforts in her semesters teaching at the university.

Lippard has authored twenty-two books to date, curated more than fifty major exhibitions, and holds nine honorary degrees. She is also the recipient of numerous awards, including a Guggenheim fellowship and two National Endowment for the Arts grants.
