Art Historian David Carrier Will Speak On ‘The Art Museum’ Feb. 6

David Carrier, Champney Family Professor at Case Western Reserve University and the Cleveland Institute of Art, will speak on “The Art Museum” at 8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 6 in Room E109 of the University of Iowa Art Building.

Carrier’s lecture, free and open to the public, is based on research for his book-in-progress, “The Philosophy of the Art Museum.”

Carrier is a well-known art critic, art writer and art historian who specializes in art and aesthetics. He is the author of more than 100 articles on a wide range of subjects from the Renaissance to contemporary art. He has written 13 books, including “Principles of Art History Writing,” “Writing about Visual Art,” “Poussin’s Paintings,” “High Art: Charles Baudelaire and the Origins of Modernism,” “The Aesthetics of the Comic Strip,” “Rosalind Krauss and American Philosophical Art Criticism” and “Sean Scully.” Carrier has lectured widely nationally and internationally and was recently a Getty Scholar.

Carrier’s visit to the UI campus is sponsored by the UI School of Art and Art History.
