Extended Description: Join us for a lecture and discussion about the conservation challenges posed by a work in the Allen's collection that has never been shown. Ellen Johnson '33 Assistant Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art Andrea Gyorody presents her research on a latex sculpture by the late feminist artist Hannah Wilke, whose interest in decay and ephemerality, Gyorody argues, supports a nontraditional approach to the display of her work. Gyorody will be joined in conversation by Marsie Scharlatt, Wilke's sister, Trustee and Director of the Hannah Wilke Collection and Archive, Los Angeles; and conservator Heather Galloway, with audience Q&A to follow. Future events in our #AllenOnline series will continue throughout the year on the first and third Thursdays of each month.
