East Building Concourse, Auditorium
Joel Shapiro, artist
Joel Shapiro will present a lecture on his nearly 50-year career as part of the Diamonstein-Spielvogel Lecture Series at the National Gallery of Art. Shapiro has become one of the most widely exhibited American sculptors. His work, from early minimal objects to increasingly expansive and complex forms, has always dealt with such central issues of the sculptural tradition as size and scale, balance and imbalance, figuration and abstraction. He believes that all sculpture is a projection of thought into the world, and he strives to create intimacy and vitality in all his projects.
Event begins at 12:00PM
