Veronica Roberts

Our next visitor is curator and art historian Veronica Roberts who will give a talk entitled

Conceptual Art and Collaboration:
Sol LeWitt Wall Drawings on University and College Campuses

Veronica Roberts is a New York-based curator, writer, and Sol LeWitt scholar. She currently holds two positions—as Adjunct Associate Curator of Contemporary Art at the Indianapolis Museum of Art and as Director of Research for the Sol LeWitt Wall Drawing Catalogue RaisonnĂ©, to be published digitally by Artifex Press.  Roberts first met LeWitt when she worked closely with the artist to coordinate his 2000 retrospective for the Whitney Museum of American Art.  Most recently, in the Spring of 2011, she guest curated the exhibition, Eva Hesse and Sol LeWitt for the Craig F. Starr Gallery in New York--the first show to look closely at the ways their decade-long friendship had a crucial impact on their lives and artistic practices.

Roberts previously worked in the Department of Painting and Sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, where she curated the 2010 exhibition, Lee Bontecou: All Freedom in Every Sense.  She holds a B.A. from Williams College and an M.A. in art history from the University of California at Santa Barbara.
