The YSU Department of Art announces a lecture by guest artist Ingrid Schaffner on Thursday, October 19 at 5:10 p.m. in the McDonough Museum of Art Auditorium. The lecture is free and open to the public.
Ingrid Schaffner is an American curator, art critic, writer, and educator, specializing in art history. She is currently at work on the 57th Carnegie International (Ci18), which opened at the Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, on October 12, 2018, and will run through March 25, 2019.
Known for the breadth of her art historical knowledge and her exceptional collaborations with artists, Schaffner’s work often coalesces around themes of archiving and collecting, photography, feminism, and alternate modernisms—especially Surrealism. Her many significant monographic and thematic exhibitions have brought attention to under-recognized artists and little-explored themes and practices in the art world.
