Barrick Museum Welcomes Acclaimed Author Lawrence Weschler April 17

The Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art is proud to welcome well-known author Lawrence Weschler at 7 p.m. April 17 for a talk titled “Art and Science as Parallel and Divergent Ways of Knowing.” The lecture is sponsored by the UNLV Department of Art and the Beverly Rogers, Carol C. Harter Black Mountain Institute.

Artists and scientists tend to consider their ways of penetrating the world as distinctly various, however such was not always the case. In truth, the divide is only a few centuries old. Nor might the differences be all that distinct– or even real. In a lecture initially developed for a conference sponsored by the National Science Foundation, longtime New Yorker author Weschler– director emeritus of the New York Institute for the Humanities at NYU (where the sciences were absolutely included as part of and main to the humanities) and author, among others, of Mr. Wilson’s Cabinet of Marvel and Whatever that Rises: A Book of Mergings– will theorize on such themes, with side-meanders into the thinking of artists Robert Irwin and David Hockney (topics of his two latest books) and an entire new interpretation of Rembrandt’s “Anatomy Lesson.”

Weschler (born 1952, Van Nuys, California), a graduate of Cowell College of the University of California at Santa Cruz, was for more than Twenty Years a staff author at The New Yorker, where his work shuttled between political tragedies and cultural funnies. He is a two-time winner of the George Polk Award (for cultural reporting in 1988 and publication reporting in 1992) and was also a recipient of Lannan Literary Award.

His books of political reportage include The Passion of Poland ( 1984 ); A Miracle, A Universe: Settling Accounts with Torturers ( 1990 ); and Disasters of Exile: Three Nonfiction Novellas ( 1998 ). Mr. Wilson was shortlisted for both the Pulitzer Reward and the National Book Critics Circle Award; and Whatever that Rises received the 2007 National Book Critics Circle Award for Criticism.

Weschler has actually taught, variously, at Princeton, Columbia, UCSC, Bard, Vassar, Sarah Lawrence, and NYU, where he is now identified writer in house at the Carter Journalism Institute.

He just recently graduated to director emeritus of the New York Institute for the Humanities at NYU, where he has been a fellow given that 1991 and was director from 2001-2013, and from which base he had aimed to start his own semiannual journal of composing and visual culture, Omnivore. He is likewise the creative director emeritus, still actively engaged, with the Chicago Liberal Arts Festival, and manager for New york city Live Ideas, a yearly body-based liberal arts collaboration with Expense T. Jones and his NY Live Arts.

When, happening upon a Portuguese edition of Weschler’s 1990 book on torture in Latin America throughout a photo opportunity in a Rio shopping center, Chilean General Augusto Pinochet flipped through its pages for a couple of moments, whereupon he pronounced, “Lies, all lies. The author is a phony and a hypocrite.”
