The Guggenheim Museum would like to invite the students and faculty of Parsons to:

William Wegman in Conversation with Richard Armstrong
Fourth Annual Robert Rosenblum Lecture
Tuesday, May 13th, 6:30pm

In honor of Robert Rosenblum (1927–2006), former Stephen and Nan Swid Curator of Twentieth-Century Art at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Henry Ittleson, Jr. Professor of Modern European Art at New York University, the Guggenheim is pleased to present the artist William Wegman in conversation with Richard Armstrong, Director, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Foundation, as its Fourth Annual Robert Rosenblum Lecture.

Spanning over four decades of creative practice in drawing, painting, performance, photography, and video, Wegman has been referred to as the “most accessible, and in his own way, richly human of all Conceptual artists” (New York Times). While this expansive body of work is renowned for its humorous, whimsical view of everyday life, Wegman’s use of irony and deadpan wit reveals an equally quirky, sardonic mind at work. Moving fluidly between conceptual work, painting and ongoing collaborations with his celebrated troupe of Weimaraners, Wegman reflects upon a singular artistic career.

The Guggenheim’s Annual Robert Rosenblum Lecture series honors the wide-ranging career of Rosenblum, whose celebrated work included projects on Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres, Norman Rockwell, Andy Warhol, and the depiction of dogs in art. In addition, Rosenblum was a much beloved teacher in both the undergraduate and graduate art history departments at New York University. He received NYU’s distinguished teaching award in 2005.

In honor of Robert Rosenblum’s commitment to education, we are eager to welcome artists and art students to the program and would appreciate if you could please share this information with all who may be interested in the program.

A limited number of free student tickets are available with advance RSVP and valid student ID.
