North Adams History Focus of Clark Lecture

12:00AM / Thursday, March 16, 2006

Williamstown - The Research and Academic Program of the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute presents the last two Clark Lectures in its spring series.

The public is welcome to attend Clark Lectures, during which visiting fellows present recent research to the academic and intellectual community. Lectures, held in the Clark café on selected Tuesdays at 5:30 pm, are followed by questions and accompanied by refreshments. Admission is free.

Anthony Lee, associate professor of art and art history at Mount Holyoke College, will present the next lecture, "When the Cobbling Began" on Tuesday, April 4. His Clark project, "When the Cobbling Began: Photography and Visual Culture in a Nineteenth-Century New England Town," exploits a remarkable visual record of the Chinese population in North Adams in the 1870s to explore the cultural life of this community and the uses of photography.

Martha Ward, associate professor of art history at the University of Chicago, will conclude the 2005-06 Fellows Lectures with "Curatorial Liberalism in 1930's France" on Tuesday, April 11. Her work at the Clark focuses on an analysis of curatorial practice and museological discourse from 1920 to 1950.

The Clark announced 14 Clark Fellows for the 2005-2006 academic year. Fellowships are awarded to national and international scholars, critics, and museum professionals whose work extends and enhances the understanding of the visual arts and their role in culture. The program encourages a critical commitment to research in the theory, history, and interpretation of works from all periods and genres. Fellows present public lectures about recent research during their residency.

The Clark is located at 225 South Street in Williamstown, Massachusetts. The galleries are open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm (daily in July and August).

Admission is free November through May.

Admission June 1 through October 31 is $10 for adults, free for children 18 and younger, members, and students with valid ID. For information, call 413-458-2303 or visit www.clarkart.edu.
