Contemporary Artist Lecture: Allen Ruppersberg with Siri Engberg

Sunday, November 5, 2017, 3:30 p.m.
Recital Hall

Cleveland native Allen Ruppersberg is one of the most influential and inventive conceptual artists to emerge in the late 1960s. Rooted in language, his work is wide-ranging in media and approach; it includes photo-based narratives combining text and image, participatory projects, and film.

Next summer, Ruppersberg will be featured in FRONT International Cleveland Triennial for Contemporary Art with an ambitious, site-specific project at the Cleveland Museum of Art. This spring, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis will present Allen Ruppersberg: Intellectual Property 1968–2018, a comprehensive survey organized by Siri Engberg, curator of visual arts at the Walker. Enjoy a conversation between Ruppersberg and Engberg to learn more about his groundbreaking work and upcoming exhibitions.

FREE; reservations required. Reserve tickets at 216-421-7350 or online at engage.clevelandart.org.
