Lane Relyea

The Society for Contemporary Art proudly presents Lane Relyea. Lane Relyea is Assistant Professor of Art Theory and Practice at Northwestern University. His essays and reviews have appeared in numerous magazines including Artforum, Parkett, Frieze, Art in America, and New Art Examiner. He has also written recent monographs on Richard Artschwager, Jeremy Blake, Toba Khedoori, Monique Prieto and others, and contributed to such exhibition catalogs as Public Offerings (Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, 2001) and Helter Skelter (Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, 1992). From 1987 to 1991 he served as editor of Artpaper, a monthly art magazine based in Minneapolis. After teaching for a decade at the California Institute of the Arts in Valencia, where he joined the faculty in 1991, in the summer of 2001 he was appointed director of the Core Residency Program and Art History at the Glassell School of Art in Houston, Texas. He continues to serve as Adjunct Lecturer at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and is finishing work on a doctoral degree in art history from the University of Texas at Austin. Lane Relyea is a keen cultural observer, a gifted theorist, and a brilliant lecturer. Please join us for “Scene and Herd: The Theme of Hanging Out in Recent Art,” a slide talk that will puncture received ideas about contemporary art and inspire debate and discussion. This is also an opportunity to see the home of Chicago Imagist artist, Roger Brown, whose broad-reaching private collection of art and artifacts has been carefully preserved and is exhibited as the artist intended.
