Artist Lectures

I have recently rediscovered an appreciation of listening to artists speak about their work. At my job at the International Center of Photography, I have had the opportunity to listen to a different photographer each week lecture about their practice and their passion. Each artist has a different process and motivation driving them in creating and there is a lot a young artist can take from the experience. New York, being the amazing wealth of opportunity that it is, has several institutions offering talks by world renowned artists.

The International Center of Photography is offering a talk by Richard Prince on April 2. This is also available to stream live. http://www.icp.org/events/2014/january/29/icp-lecture-series

The New York Public Library has an amazing spring line up of artists and thinkers including Malcolm Gladwell, Kara Walker, Jad Abumrad, and Chuck Palahniuk among many others. http://www.nypl.org/events/live-nypl
