April 6, 2019 at 2:00pm, galleries, FREE

Join us for an afternoon of focused gallery talks by Stanford students at the Anderson Collection. Art makers and art historians join together in pairs to present their views, observations, and thoughts on specific works in the collection. Come for one or for all! The talks begins at 2:00 pm in the galleries.


Jennie Waldow and Stephanie Sherriff on Robert Irwin’s Untitled, 1969.

Indie Choudhury and Stuart Robertson on Martin Puryear’s Dumb Luck, 1990.

Linden Hill and Hannah Subotnick on William Baziotes’ Serpentine, 1961.


Jennie Waldow studies postwar American and European art, with a focus on 1960s and 1970s Conceptualism, and she is currently writing a dissertation about the work of Allen Ruppersberg.  Her areas of interest include Fluxus, artist’s books and ephemera, political activism, and commercial procedures.  She has previously worked at the Museum of Modern Art and the Los Angeles Nomadic Division.

Stephanie Sherriff is a second-year MFA candidate in Art Practice at Stanford University. Her work with light, video, sound, and plants results in abstract, ephemeral forms that are deeply dependent on the conditions of physical space. As an interdisciplinary sculptor, performer, composer, and media artist, her artwork is experiential in nature and consists of sculptural, time-based systems that are often living, changing, and sometimes dying.  She received her BA in Studio Art from San Francisco State University in 2014 and has been actively performing and exhibiting work in the Bay Area since 2008.

Indie Choudhury is a doctoral candidate in Art History at Stanford. She works on postwar black abstraction with a focus on issues of race and representation.

Stuart ‘Stewy’ Robertson is a Jamaican born and raised mixed media artist with an interest in representing life within the African Diaspora. His current work explores reclaimed objects as vessels for the untold human narratives molded by histories of production and consumption.

Linden Hill is a first-year PhD student in Art and Art History who researches the intersection of twentieth-century fashion and dance history. Prior to her studies at Stanford, Linden worked as the archivist for the designer Thom Browne and held research positions at the Palais Galliera – Musée de la Mode de la Ville de Paris and the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Linden received a B.A. in Art History and Dance from Barnard College and an M.A. in Design History from the Bard Graduate Center.

Hannah Subotnick makes art using film, animation, photography, dance and sound. Although her work crosses many disciplines, at its core is a love of the transformative potential of the lens. She uses visual mysteries to explore non-corporeal intimacy.
