In this program, writer Amy Sherlock, who interviewed Woodman for Frieze in 2016, will speak to the artist’s experimentations with ceramic-based art, which fused the boundaries between sculpture and painting. Judith Tannenbaum, board member at the Woodman Family Foundation, will touch on major milestones in Woodman’s career, underscoring her influence on postwar American art. The conversation will be moderated by Kyle Dancewicz, Deputy Director at SculptureCenter.
Betty Woodman (1930–2018) is recognized not only as one of the most important artists to work in ceramics—and one of those most responsible for its inclusion in contemporary art historical discourse—but also as an iconoclastic figure whose advances in several mediums made her a major voice in postwar American art.
