Crewdson To Speak At Williams College

12:00AM / Wednesday, October 04, 2006

Williamstown - On October 14, Gregory Crewdson will present the Plonsker Family Lecture in Contemporary Art at Williams College.

The lecture, given annually to examine current issues in contemporary art, is entitled "In a Lonely Place: The Aesthetics of Alienation from Edward Hopper to the Present in American Art and Film."

The lecture begins at 2:00 pm in Brooks-Rogers Auditorium, Bernhard Music Center. A reception will follow at the museum. The Plonsker Family Lecture Series was established in 1994 by Madeleine Plonsker, Harvey Plonsker (Class of 1961), and their son Ted Plonsker (Class of 1986).

This is a free, public event. The lecture coincides with the exhibition, beginning at the Williams College Museum of Art (WCMA) on October 12 called Drawing on Hopper: Gregory Crewdson/Edward Hopper. This exhibition is an intimate glimpse inside the creative process of two artists separated by time but connected through a single subject: the psychological landscape of American culture.

This exhibition will feature Edward Hopper's Morning in a City, which has recently been treated by the Williamstown Art Conservation Center, along with several of the painting's preparatory sketches, on loan from the Whitney Museum of American Art. Additionally, three enigmatic photographs by contemporary photographer Gregory Crewdson will be on view with their accompanying documentary stills. A season premiere party, celebrating the museum's fall exhibitions, will be held on November 10 at 5:00 pm.

In addition, WCMA will offer a series of Wednesday afternoon gallery talks and lectures to discuss the various themes and interpretations of Drawing on Hopper: Gregory Crewdson/Edward Hopper.
