The Burt and Deedee McMurtry Lecture
The Anderson Collection at Stanford University is hosting the second annual Burt and Deedee McMurtry Lecture at Cemex Auditorium featuring this year’s distinguished guest artist, ROBERT IRWIN.
For more than six decades, Robert Irwin (b. 1928, Long Beach, California) has explored perception as the fundamental issue of art. Irwin, who began his career as a painter in the 1950s and became the pioneer of the L.A.-based “Light and Space” movement in the 1960s, has, through a continual breaking down of the frame, come to regard the role of art as “conditional,” or something that works in and responds to the specific surrounding world of experience.
