Corita Kent, also known as Sister Mary Corita, was an artist with an innovative approach to design and education. By the 1960s, her vibrant serigraphs were drawing international acclaim. Corita’s work reflected her concerns about poverty, racism, and war, and her messages of peace and social justice continue to resonate with audiences today. Learn more →
Join Corita Art Center at The Preserve on March 7 as we host Ken Lum for a presentation themed around the double lives of artists. This is second talk in CAC’s new lecture, programming, and exhibition series: Catching Sight, which explores the role of photography in Corita's art, ideas, and pedagogy. As the lecture series evolves, it will expand beyond the theme of photography into other intersecting points of inquiry, creating a forum for diverse perspectives and artistic practices.
I think there are a lot of really interesting figures who are outliers to the system of art, who offer all kinds of lessons for the art world.
Ken Lum on Corita Kent
Artist, writer, and curator Ken Lum will deliver a lecture that intersects his own practice with Corita’s, themed around notions of ambivalence, double lives, and the boundaries of art and non-art.
