Lucy Lippard (1937) is an American writer, art critic, curator and activist whose reflections have been at the centre of contemporary discussions of feminism, identity, and life’s capacity to transform art. Lippard will be presenting the seventh lecture within the lecture series of Museo Reina Sofía. Lippard’s work has been central to a number of contemporary debates including the dematerialization of art in the late 1960s, artistic protests against the Vietnam War in 1970, feminist identity, the aesthetics of social minorities in US, and, more recently, the relationships between art, territory and ecology. However, her trajectory has gradually led her away from art institutions and the art system and into approaching art from life itself.
