Wednesday, February 24, 2021

12:20 PM-2:00 PM

The Art and Art History Department presents a lecture by curator Kristen Hileman. This lecture will occur during Professor Jen Blazina's Screenprint 2 class.

Baltimore-based independent curator and curator-in-residence at The Delaware Contemporary Kristen Hileman spent nearly two decades working in museums, first as a curator at the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, DC and more recently as the Head of the Contemporary Department at the Baltimore Museum of Art. Her monographic exhibitions brought new attention to important female artists Anne Truitt, Maren Hassinger and Jo Smail, and she has realized major commissions with Theresa Chromati, Mary Reid Kelley and Patrick Kelley, Sarah Oppenheimer, Tomás Saraceno and others. Additionally, Hileman has organized exhibitions of the works of John Baldessari, Cai Guo-Qiang, Njideka Akunyili Crosby, Lizzie Fitch/Ryan Trecartin, Meleko Mokgosi, John Waters and many other accomplished artists, alongside her work stewarding important collections of contemporary art. She has taught undergraduate and graduate courses at the Corcoran College of Art and Design, George Washington University, and Johns Hopkins University and is a frequent visiting critic and lecturer.

This virtual event is open to the Drexel community.
