Guest Lecture: Richard Flood, 11 AM – 12 PM

Do you like the works of Matthew Barney, Robert Gober, and Sigmar Polke? Would you like to meet the man responsible for some of their most significant exhibitions in the United States? Richard Flood is giving his first talk in Atlanta here. Bring your questions about ambitious artists, progressive museums, ravenous collectors, and critical conflicts.

Flood is the Chief Curator of the New Museum. From 1994-2005, he was Chief Curator at the Walker Art Center, where he organized a number of well-received exhibitions, including Brilliant!: New Art from London, Zero to Infinity: Arte Povera 1962-1972, and Robert Gober: Sculpture + Drawing. Flood previously served as the Director of Barbara Gladstone Gallery, Curator at P.S.1, and Managing Editor of Artforum magazine.

This event is part of our Artist Survival Skills series.
