Lucy Lippard

Santa Fe, New Mexico


For some fifty years, Lucy Lippard, art critic, writer, curator, and activist, has played a critical role in shaping—and simultaneously deconstructing—what we define as art.





  • Lucy was key in bringing the voices of women to art criticism
  • Her writings, including the seminal Six Years: The Dematerialization of the Art Object, are required reading in classrooms around the world and were the subject of a groundbreaking exhibition on Conceptualism at the Brooklyn Museum in 2012
  • Lucy’s extensive list of accomplishments and awards includes a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Frank Jewett Mather Award for Criticism from the College Art Association, and two National Endowment for the Arts grants
