Event Postponed - Vera List's Legacy: The Democracy of the Print

6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

Due to Hurricane Sandy, the university is closed and all events have been postponed. We will announce another date for this event as soon as possible.

Championed as a medium for reaching wide audiences, prints in the 20th century have drawn inspiration from social commentary, popular culture, graphic design, and art history. Today as print-making progresses with unrelenting force into the digital age, prints remain a favorite opportunity for the enriching experience of living with visual art—a mission at the heart of Vera List’s vision as an arts patron and collector.

Vera List (1908-2002), spirited individualist and enlightened supporter of many of the most significant artists of the late 20th century, was also a devoted philanthropist. It was the generosity of Vera and her husband Albert that enabled the founding of the Vera List Art Project at Lincoln Center in 1962, MIT’s List Arts Center in 1982, and the Vera List Center for Art and Politics at The New School in 1992, among others.

In recognition of this exceptional legacy and these institutional anniversaries, six internationally renowned artists have joined forces with Lincoln Center, MIT and the Vera List Center to create the Vera List Anniversary Print Portfolio. They are Dan Graham, Paul Ramírez Jonas, Sarah Morris, Matt Mullican, Fred Tomaselli, and Fred Wilson.

On October 30, Kathleen Goncharov, Curator of Exhibitions and Audience Engagement, Boca Raton Museum of Art, and former curator of The New School Art Collection, Paul C. Ha, director of the List Visual Arts Center, and artist Paul Ramírez Jonas examine the democratizing force of prints through the lens of Vera List’s legacy. The talk is moderated by Artspace.com editor-in-chief Andrew M.  Goldstein

Organized and presented by MIT, Lincoln Center, Artspace, and the Vera List Center for Art and Politics, in conjunction with the center’s New School class
Art & the Political.
