In conjunction with Artists Space’s current exhibition Macho Man, Tell It To My Heart: Collected by Julie Ault (on view through Feb20th) the organization has a full line of film programming. The next program on Jan 16th at 7pm will feature interviews of Lucy Lippard, Nancy Spero, Lyn Blumenthal and Kate Horsfield. From Artists Space’s website:

“Lyn Blumenthal and Kate Horsfield, in their founding Video Data Bank series, interviewed writer, critic, feminist, and art historian Lucy Lippard soon after the publication of her essential book on conceptual art, Six Years: the dematerialization of the art object from 1966 to 1972. The book remains a touchstone of extraordinary scope, while these videos, keeping with the medium’s purpose-driven roots, concentrate on Lippard’s politics. Blumenthal and Horsfield were art students themselves when they founded VDB with this interview series, and were fierce fans in their deployment of voices to create a validating discourse of women practitioners. Blumenthal and Horsfield’s 1982 interview with Nancy Spero begins with her decision to allow political events to determine what she chose to paint, and why. Spero, along with her partner Leon Golub, whose work appears in the exhibition, had a unique place in the factionalized 1980s New York art world, sustaining vibrantly engaged practices in a scene riven with competing agendas and freighted with political, philosophical, and market stakes.”
