Opening-Day Talk: Liz Larner with Mary Ceruti

In celebration of Liz Larner: Don’t put it back like it was, please join Walker Executive Director and curator of the exhibition, Mary Ceruti, for a conversation with artist Liz Larner, focusing on the diverse ideas that inform Larner’s work, from the posthuman and structures of power to materiality and the relationship between color and form.

The exhibition presents some 30 works produced between 1987 and 2020, including many pieces never before shown. Featured works include Larner’s early experiments with petri dishes and destructive machines, installations that respond to architecture, and more recent wall-based works in ceramic. As a whole, the exhibition underscores the power and intention of Larner’s work to reconsider objects in physical space as not only a matter of architectural proportions but also as a social, gendered, and psychological construction.

Free tickets will be available at the Main Lobby desk beginning at 2 pm. This event will also be livestreamed.

This event will have ASL interpretation and Audio Description for both the in-person and virtual programs. There will also be live, auto-generated captioned available for the virtual livestream. To access the Audio Description for the virtual live stream, you will need two devices, one that has internet or cellular data to watch the video and one that is able to make phone calls to listen to the Audio Description. To access the live Audio Description, call 757-841-1652 and enter access code 8907307.
