Florence Gould Foundation Fellow Lisa Lee presents, “Thomas Hirschhorn: Work in Movement.”

Throughout the 1990s, contemporary artist Thomas Hirschhorn contrived unorthodox modes of circulation—gifting, pamphleting, hawking, abandoning—in pursuit of a “nonexclusive audience” for his work. This lecture will consider Hirschhorn’s strategies and motivations for setting his work in movement across Paris.

Lisa Lee is a member of the faculty of Emory University, Department of Art History. Her monograph,Isa Genzken: Sculpture as World Receiver, appeared in 2017 from the University of Chicago Press. She is editor of Isa Genzken (October Files) and co-editor, with Hal Foster, of Critical Laboratory: The Writings of Thomas Hirschhorn,(MIT Press). At the Clark, she will be working on a monograph analyzing the first decade of Thomas Hirschhorn’s artistic career, focusing on his solutions to form, display, and distribution.
