Katharine Stout launches ICI’s 2011 public program series with a talk on the Turner Prize, the prestigious and much debated award set up by Tate Britain in 1984 to celebrate the cutting edge in new British art. In her lecture, Stout will discuss the role the Turner Prize has played within the institutional context of Tate Britain as well as its relationship to the contemporary arts scenes in London and abroad. This event will be preceded by a small wine reception at 6:30 pm. The Curators Perspective is free of charge and open to the public, though seating is limited. To RSVP please contact Chelsea Haines at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-254-8200 x26.
The Curator’s Perspective: Katharine Stout has been made possible, in part, by grants from the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts; by in-kind support from Tanya Bonakdar Gallery; and by generous contributions from the ICI Board of Trustees, ICI Benefactors Barbara and John Robinson, and ICI Partners and Patrons.
