Conference: “Annette Michelson and the ‘Radical Aspiration’ of Criticism”

Annette Michelson (1922–2018) developed, throughout her career, a remarkable form of criticism, in which the close analysis of objects is dedicated to fostering a real theoretical dialogue with the works. It is within this framework that she and Rosalind Krauss founded the critical and theoretical review October in 1976.

This evening will bring together three researchers from different disciplines to discuss Michelson’s heritage and her place in contemporary debate. Through a presentation of documents and films, talks will examine her multiple interests (from minimal art to experimental film, from Soviet avant-garde to surrealism), her relationship to women artists and feminism, and her ties with France.

This conversation is organized as part of the Terra Foundation Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at the Institut national d’histoire de l’art (INHA).

Speakers:

  • Enrico Camporesi, 2017–18 Terra Foundation Postdoctoral Research Fellow at INHA, Paris
  • Élisabeth Lebovici, critic and art historian, Paris
  • Michele Pierson, Senior Lecturer in Film Studies, King’s College, London
