Tuesday Evenings @ the Modern: WILLIAM LAMSON
-Tuesday, October 20, 7pm @ Fort Worth Modern Art Museum-

William Lamson is a Brooklyn-based artist recognized for an inventive body of work that, as described on National Public Radio, uses “inexpensive materials and simple structures” to create “visuals that are mesmerizing and, in a word, playful.” Addressing issues of masculinity, amateurism, science, play, and the quixotic quest for personal heroism, Lamson speaks to the spirit of ingenuity in sculptures, photographs, and performances that broaden horizons and entertain the imagination. For Tuesday Evenings, Lamson presents what he describes as his “arduous endeavors that offer the perpetual hope of transcendence, however flawed the undertaking may be.”

Tuesday Evenings at the Modern begin at 7 pm in the auditorium. The series brings artists, scholars, and critics to discuss their work each week at the Modern. Admission is free and open to the public. Free admission tickets can be picked up at the Modern’s admission desk beginning at 5 pm on the day of the lecture. Seating begins at 6:30 pm and is limited to the first 250 ticketholders. A live broadcast of the lecture will be shown in Café Modern for any additional guests. During the series the Museum galleries and Café Modern remain open until 7.

William Lamson's solo exhibition 'Automatic' at Marty Walker Gallery opens Saturday, October 17, 6-8pm.
