“This Is Art”: Anatomy of a Sentence

Monday, September 24 at 7 p.m.


Pre-registration encouraged

Visiting Professor Thierry de Duve’s “Duchamp the Messenger” seminar for the Corcoran College of Art + Design culminates in this lecture, in which de Duve examines the four concepts or specifications of the word “art”: art in general, art as such, art altogether, and art itself. De Duve is an art historian and theorist and is currently serving as a fellow at the National Gallery of Art’s Center for the Advanced Study of Visual Art.

Online registration for this program is now closed. Tickets will be available at the door of the auditorium one half hour before the lecture begins, at 6:30 p.m.
