Campbell Lecture: From Art Objects to Art Subjects, Lane Relyea

Is it time to rethink the institution of art? Artists increasingly devote as much attention to organizing as to object making.

Campbell Lecture: Lane Relyea, professor and chair, Department of Art Theory & Practice, Northwestern University

Is it time to rethink the institution of art? Artists increasingly devote as much attention to organizing as to object making. The old “white cube” system is today being replaced by a new system that aims to produce and distribute not so much art objects but rather artists themselves and their audiences. In other words, this system increasingly tends to develop art subjects. Lane Relyea chairs the Department of Art Theory & Practice
at Northwestern University and is a former editor of Art Journal. He has written widely on contemporary art since 1983, and his book Your Everyday Art World, on the effects of communication networks on artistic practice and its contexts, was published by MIT Press in 2013.

This free lecture is part of The University of Akron’s Catherine H. Campbell Memorial Art History Lecture Series, which brings prominent art historians to Akron each year for public lectures and to work closely with UA art students.
