      EVENT DETAILS
      The Gibbes Distinguished Lecture Series Featuring Fred Wilson

      with Founded with the generous support of Esther Ferguson, Additional Support Provided by U.S. Trust & Bank of America
      The Gibbes Museum of Art is thrilled to present Fred Wilson as our 2019 Distinguished Lecture Speaker.Fred Wilson (b. 1954, Bronx, New York) challenges assumptions of history, culture, race, and conventions of display with his work. By reframing objects and cultural symbols, he alters traditional interpretations, encouraging viewers to reconsider social and historical narratives. Since his groundbreaking and historically significant exhibition Mining the Museum (1992) at the Maryland Historical Society, Wilson has been the subject of many solo exhibitions. The artists many accolades include the prestigious John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundations Genius Grant (1999); and the Ford Foundation's, The Art of Change Award (2017-18). Wilson was recently named the 2019 recipient of Brandeis Universitys Creative Arts Award and is a trustee of the Whitney Museum of American Art.
