Deep Content: How Art Means, and Means, and Means

Have you checked out the Rudolf Stingel exhibition? Do you absolutely love the bright orange carpet and Styrofoam works but wonder how they are considered "paintings"? Senior Art Critic for the Village Voice and New York art scenester Jerry Saltz will help you to understand and interpret Stingel's work.  This event was presetned as a part of the Gloria Brackstone Solow and Eugene A. Solow, MD, Lecture Series. 

Some of today's most innovative artists, designers, and thinkers explore contemporary art and design through stories about their experiences and careers. The Museum of Contemporary Art's People Who Shape our World spring lecture series presents perspectives from visual artist Vik Muniz, Village Voice art critic Jerry Saltz, architect Nanako Umemoto, and graphic designer Geoff McFetridge.  Each lecture provides an opportunity to learn about how contemporary art practices enrich each person's work, and is archived as a part of this online collection:
