Anne Rorimer, a freelance curator and independent scholar specializing in American and European art after 1965, will deliver a lecture titled Drawing the Line Between Art and Reality: Proposals, Progressions, and Processes in Minimal, Postminimal, and Conceptual Art as part of the Sam Fox School Public Lecture Series. Her talk will focus on specific works in the exhibition Notations: Contemporary Drawing as Idea and Process, and will address major issues in innovative art practice in the 1960s and 1970s. Her 6:30p lecture will be preceeded by a 6p reception in the atrium of the Kemper Art Museum.
Rorimer was formerly a curator of modern and contemporary art at the Art Institute of Chicago. With Ann Goldstein she organized the exhibition Reconsidering the Object of Art: 1965‐1975, held at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles in 1995 and 1996. She has published in scholarly art journals, including Artforum and October, and exhibition catalogues and is the author of New Art in the Sixties and Seventies: Redefining Reality (Thames and Hudson, Ltd., 2001/2004).
