Lucy Lippard to Receive the 2010 Award for Curatorial Excellence from the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College
ANNANDALE-ON-HUDSON, N.Y.—The Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College (CCS Bard) is presenting its thirteenth annual Award for Curatorial Excellence to curator, writer, and activist Lucy Lippard. For more than four decades, Lippard’s insightful, timely, and at times radical curatorial and critical endeavors have made a profound and resonant impact on our understanding of the art of our time. From her pioneering early support of conceptual artists such as Sol LeWitt and Lawrence Weiner, and her advocacy of feminist art, to her groundbreaking work as a writer and critic, Lippard’s contributions to the field of contemporary art are countless.
The formal presentation of the award by artist Hans Haacke will be made at a gala dinner on April 7, 2010, at Gotham Hall (1356 Broadway at 36th Street) in New York City. For more information, or to purchase tickets, please contact Andrea Guido at 845.758.7414 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
