Artist Lecture Series
Public Discourse Artists join Art Practice about 6-8 times per year to meet with Graduate Students in their studios, to meet with faculty, and to give public lectures about their work at the Berkeley Art Museum. Endowed by the Wiesenfeld Family Foundation, the lecture series is curated by Prof. Asma Kazmi and Prof. Kenyatta A.C. Hinkle. A downloadable pdf poster of the current lecture series is usually linked here.
The Art Practice lecture series included the following speakers in the recent past:
All lectures are free and open to the public. Because artists depend on lectures to support their practice, their speaking fees are high. A lecture can cost up to $50.00 per participant. This seems high, but the right lecture can inspire a person for a lifetime. While the lecture series has a flagship endowment, donations help pay for staff time, travel and honoraria.
