A lecture by New Museum of Contemporary Art's adjunct curator.
Each semester the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College hosts a regular program of lectures by the foremost artists, curators, art historians, and critics of our day, situating the school and museum's concerns within the larger context of contemporary art production and discourse. Lauren Cornell (Executive Director, Rhizome, and Adjunct Curator, the New Museum of Contemporary Art) oversees and develops Rhizome's programs, all of which serve to promote and contextualize art engaged with technology. Previously, Cornell worked as a curator and writer in London and New York. She worked in the Andy Warhol Film Project at the Whitney Museum and, from 2002-2004, she served as Executive Director of Ocularis, an organization dedicated to avant-garde cinema, video and new media. As Adjunct Curator at the New Museum, Cornell produces the monthly New Silent Series, and has co-curated exhibitions including "The Generational: Younger Than Jesus". Her show "Free" opened at the New Museum on October 20, 2010.
