Ori Soltes will present the lecture Corita Kent in Her Contexts: Art, Craft, Politics, and Society at The Warhol Museum. This lecture is presented in conjunction with Someday is Now: The Art of Corita Kent, on view at The Warhol until Sunday, April 19.
Dr. Ori Soltes, who teaches theology, philosophy, and art history at Georgetown University, explores Corita Kent’s contributions to art history. Visual art has rarely been devoid of connections to religion and politics, and the hierarchy of visual artistic categories – architecture, sculpture, and painting; painting and photography; art and craft – has often offered blurred boundaries, particularly in the modern era. Kent often articulated those connections and helped identify that one form of self-expression is no more “art” than another.
The lecture will take place on Saturday, April 18, starting at 2:00 pm at The Andy Warhol Museum. This event is free with museum admission.
