Looking and Lunching: The Allan Sekula Library

Looking and Lunching: The Allan Sekula Library


November 21, 2019

12:00 PM-1:00 PM

Clark Center

Take a closer look at the Clark’s collection during Looking and Lunching, a half hour of discussion focusing on one work from the collection followed by continued discussion over lunch with the presenter and fellow art lovers in the Carswell Room. This month, join Susan Roeper, director of the library, as she discusses the Clark’s enigmatic Allan Sekula Library, the 15,000 volume personal library of thoughtful and thought-provoking artist, photographer, filmmaker, writer, and teacher, Allan Sekula. The collection, as shelved in the Manton Research Center Reading Room, is both an archive of Sekula’s wide-ranging interests and a visually stunning art installation that allows varying levels of interpretation of format and content.

Free with gallery admission. Plan to arrive early to pre-order and purchase your meal, or bring your own lunch. Limited seating available. Meet at the admissions desk in the Clark Center.
