Travis Jeppesen, a critic, novelist, and artist living in Berlin, has developed innovative ways of addressing sculpture—including what he calls “object-oriented writing.”
New York-based artist Erin Shirreff works across a range of forms to consider the interactions of sculpture and photography and how they deal with concerns like scale and presence.
Here, Jeppesen and Shirreff each respond to Richard Rezac’s practice and then come together in discussion, drawing on their own work to consider the various ways we experience sculpture.
This event is presented in conjunction with our current exhibition, Richard Rezac: Address, on view at the Renaissance Society through June 17.
It is free and open to the public; it takes place in the Classics Building on the University of Chicago campus.
