Curator Talk with Lisa Le Feuvre

Executive Director of Holt/Smithson Foundation, Lisa Le Feuvre explores the work of artist Robert Smithson and how it resonates with the present moment.

Robert Smithson (1938-1970) was an artist who expanded what art could be and where it could be found. For over 50 years, his work, writings, and ideas have influenced artists and thinkers, building the ground from which contemporary art has grown. By exploring the conceptual and physical boundaries of knowledge, Smithson raised essential questions about our place in the world.

Lisa Le Feuvre is the inaugural Executive Director of Holt/Smithson Foundation, the artist-endowed foundation dedicated to the creative legacies of Nancy Holt and Robert Smithson. Collaborating with artists, writers, thinkers, and institutions the Foundation realizes exhibitions, publishes books, initiates artist commissions, programs educational events, encourages research, and develops collections globally its headquarters in Santa Fe.
