Elizabeth A. Sackler is an arts activist and a public historian who lectures and writes on ethics and morality in the art market and beyond. The idea of a place, a center, bound to equality without artificial constraints led her to found the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum, home of “The Dinner Party” by Judy Chicago which honors women’s contributions in all fields throughout history. Her lecture will be about: "Moving Right Along: The Radicalization of Normal People" and we look forward to the Q&A portion of her lecture!
All lectures are free and open to the public.
Stay tuned to the blog for upcoming lectures including Donald Kuspit, Jeanne Silverthorne and Phoebe Hoban.
