Buzz-Worthy Art Talk with Michael Brenson
"Meditations on Meaning in the Art World"
Critic, curator, teacher, and scholar, Michael Brenson is one of the compelling voices in today’s art world. As art critic for "The New York Times" from 1982 to 1991, he thoughtfully reviewed new and established artists and wrestled with tensions contributing to the culture wars. He has written books on such iconic creative minds as Alberto Giacometti, Luis Jimenez, Maya Lin, Martin Puryear, David Smith, and Ursula von Rydingsvard.
Beyond his mainstream writing for "The New York Times," Brenson has contributed to such leading art journals as "Artforum," "Art in America," "Art Journal," and "Art Criticism."
Michael Brenson spoke Thursday, April 5, at the Ulrich Museum of Art at Wichita State University in conjunction with Buzz-Worthy Art Talks, featuring prominent voices in today's visual culture and bringing fascinating trends and personalities to Wichita.
