LYNNE TILLMAN AND KERRY TRIBE

Joseph Beuys is a controversial figure in art history, in large part because of his constructed biography: Beuys often recanted his dramatic origin story, a swirl of truth and lies.”*

In an Un-Private Collection talk this week at The Broad, Lynne Tillman and Kerry Tribe will “explore the ways that Beuys, Tillman and Tribe each raise questions about how identity shapes public reception and perception,” in a conversation moderated by artist Shana Lutker, co-organizer of this series for X-TRA.
