Jori Finkel will present a keynote lecture on April 4, 2023. The talk will be from 5:30 to 6:45 in Hepner Hall 221, followed by a reception from 7 to 8 PM in Art South 477. Jori Finkel writes about art for The New York Times and The Art Newspaper from Los Angeles, where she has lived since 2005. Before that, she was a senior editor of Art+Auction magazine in New York. In 2018 she developed and co-produced for KCET the Emmy-nominated documentary Artist and Mother. Her book It Speaks to Me: Art that Inspires Artists (Prestel) was called “fascinating” by Publishers Weekly and “an argument for why art museums matter” by New York magazine. She lectures regularly at museums and art fairs and also appears on broadcasts and podcasts as part of her larger project of making contemporary art more accessible.
