Helen Molesworth Connective Conversations

 

| Open Player in New Window

Molesworth, chief curator at The Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston, discusses a new exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. Her lecture about the exhibit, “This Will Have Been: Art, Love & Politics in the 1980s,” is part of the University of Oregon “Connective Conversations” and The Ford Family Foundation’s Curator and Critic Tours and Lectures series. Her visit is also made possible by the George and Matilda Fowler Endowed Fund.

The lectures will cover artwork and artists’ experiences from 1979 to 1992. During this era, the political sphere was dominated by the ideas of former U.S. President Ronald Reagan and British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher; the music scene was transformed by punk and the birth of hip-hop; and everyday lives were radically altered by a host of technological developments, from the Sony Walkman and the ATM to MTV and personal computers.
