Artist and writer Mira Schor at the RISD Museum

Mira Schor, “Living Between Visuality, Materiality, and Language”
Thursday, October 16, 6:30-8:00
RISD Museum, Danforth Room

Artist and writer Mira Schor is the author of the blog A Year of Positive Thinking and the essay collections WET: On Painting, Feminism, and Art Culture and A Decade of Negative Thinking: Essays on Art, Politics, and Daily Life. Her paintings and writings combine political, theoretical, and formalist inquiry into expressions that are critical, personal, and inviting at once. Schor will share some of her writings and work and reflect on living between word and image.

This lecture is the third in the series “It, Me, You, Us: Close Encounters with Interpretation,” which explores varied ways of writing about and engaging with art, with an emphasis on the sensory, the subjective, and the shared.
