Aspen, Colorado’s renowned artist community Anderson Ranch has announced its lineup for its eight-week Featured Artists & Conversations Series, which brings together artists, critics, collectors, and curators together to participate in panel discussions, Q&As, and lectures.
This year, participating artists include McArthur Binion, Enrique Martínez Celaya, Lizzie Fitch, Trevor Paglen, Arlene Shechet, Alec Soth, Frank Stella, Hank Willis Thomas and Ryan Trecartin. Art collectors Dennis Scholl and Jennifer and David Stockman, curators Dr. Jeffrey Grove and Lisa Phillips, director of the New Museum Toby Devan, and president and CEO of the Aspen Institute Walter Isaacson will also feature in the events lineup. Public events are free, but a reservation is required.
In the past, artists such as Marina Abramović (2013), Theaster Gates (2014), Rashid Johnson (2012), Laurie Simmons (2011), Mickalene Thomas (2010), Bill Viola (2013), and Kara Walker (2012) have been involved in the series, which tends to bring in about 1,500 collectors, patrons, art aficionados, and Anderson students and faculty on select dates throughout Aspen’s summer season.
