Brain Food:

Chief Curator Alicia G. Longwell on Keith Sonnier 

3-weeks, Thursdays, 12 pm

Grab lunch from the café and get a unique, in-depth view of Keith Sonnier from his long-time friend Alicia G. Longwell, the Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Chief Curator, in this series of casual illustrated talks in the Lichtenstein Theater.

September 6:
Late Nights and Juke Joints: Discover how Sonnier’s upbringing during the 1950s in the central Louisiana town of Grand Mamou—a landscape of bayous dotted with road houses—shaped his worldview.

Ba-O-Ba: Longwell elaborates on the artist’s deep interest in cultures and discusses works in the exhibition inspired by his global travels to India, Japan, Indonesia, and Bali.


September 20:
Eau et gaz à tous les étages: Understand the connection between Sonnier’s process, the ephemeral materiality of neon gas, and the influential conceptual artist Marcel Duchamp.
