This seminar follows on from Anne Wagner's lecture, Women's Time: Martin and Truitt in the Moment of Minimalism, at The Courtauld on Thursday 3 February 2011, with a broader discussion of sculpture and time, particularly as seen through a range of critical writings by Michael Fried, Rosalind Krauss, and others.


Anne M. Wagner, The Henry Moore Foundation Research Curator at Tate Britain, was for many years a professor in the Department of History of Art at the University of California, Berkeley, where she remains the Class of 1936 Chair Emerita. Her work has appeared in such journals as Artforum, Representations, October, and The Threepenny Review. Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux: Sculptor of the Second Empire, was published in 1986, and Three Artists (Three Women) in 1996. In 2005, her third book, Mother Stone: The Vitality of Modern British Sculpture, came out from Yale University Press. A book of her essays, A House Divided: On Recent American Art, will appear in 2011. In progress is Behaving Globally, which has been commissioned by Princeton University Press for a new series called Essays on the Arts.
