Maureen P. Sherlock presents an analysis of two major currents in art, museum, and critical practice, responding to crises points in late capitalism. Her talk addresses issues raised by Pierre Bourdieu, Jurgen Habermas, and Nancy Frazier in an attempt to ground a critique of current art ideologies.

Sherlock has taught philosophy at a number of universities and has published extensively on critical theory and contemporary art. Her essay on Robert Gober will be published this fall by the Dia Center for the Arts, and her book City Sites: Urbanism, Art, and the Public Sphere is forthcoming. Her articles Ecce Homo: The Work of Roert Blanchon, and “Unruly Publics” will appear in the New Art Examiner’s November and December issues respectively, while “Of Rings, Rapture, and Regression” will appear in the December issue of Sculpture.

She is currently also working on a catalogue essay on the work of Greg Green, which will be published by Max Protetch and Feigen Gallery in conjunction with a project Green has been commissioned for in England. An essay on transgressive art practices will also be published in an anthology edited by Glenn Harper for the State University of New York Press later this spring.
