Internationally Acclaimed Artist Fred Wilson to Speak at Knoxville Museum of Art April 7

Internationally acclaimed artist Fred Wilson will present the Eighth Annual Sarah Jane Hardrath Kramer Lecture the Knoxville Museum of Art on Tuesday, April 7, 2015 at 6pm.

As an installation artist, Fred Wilson explores the relationship between museums and individual works, questioning and deconstructing the traditional display of art and artifacts in museums. Wilson is a 1999 MacArthur Fellow and represented the United States at the 2003 Venice Biennale. His work can be found in the Seattle Art Museum, the Corning Museum of Glass, the Tate Modern, Toledo Museum of Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Baltimore Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Whitney Museum of American Art.

The annual Sarah Jane Hardrath Kramer Lecture honors the memory of a dedicated staff member of the Dulin Gallery of Art and the Knoxville Museum of Art and celebrates her passion for the visual arts and learning. Each year the series brings to Knoxville a prominent artist, art historian, art educator, or expert in a related field.

The event is free and open to the public thanks to support from the Sarah Jane Hardrath Kramer Fund, The Frank and Virginia Rogers Foundation, The Melrose Foundation, and Wayne R. Kramer. Reservations are recommended by contacting ddubose@knoxart.org by March 31. Seating can only be guaranteed to those who make reservations.
