Jimmie Durham Lecture Series - Anne Ellegood

Jimmie Durham Post American

In conjunction with Jimmie Durham: At the Center of the World, the first North American retrospective of the artist's work, exhibition curator Anne Ellegood presents "Jimmie Durham: Post- American." Ellegood will discuss the life and work of Durham, arguing that his life-long resistance to the borders and boundaries that seek to define and contain us position him as an American artist who redefines the category. Through his art, writing and political engagement, Durham has articulated a position that embraces cosmopolitanism and argues for international activism.

Since 2009 Anne Ellegood has been the Senior Curator at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles where she has organized numerous exhibitions. Prior to joining the Hammer in 2009, Ellegood was Curator of Contemporary Art at the Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden in Washington D.C. and from 1998-2003 she was the Associate Curator at the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York. She recently organized the first North American retrospective of the work of Jimmie Durham, which opened at the Hammer in January 2017, traveled to the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City, and is currently at its final venue, the Remai Modern in Saskatoon. Other recent solo shows include those with Kevin Beasley, Charles Gaines, John Outterbridge, Pedro Reyes, Frances Upritchard, Lily van der Stokker, and Judith Hopf. At the Hammer, she has also organized the group exhibitions Take It or Leave It: Institution, Image, Ideology (2014) and All of this and nothing (2011). In 2011, she was selected by the Australian Council for the Arts to curate Sydney-based artist Hany Armanious’s exhibition for the Australian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale. Ellegood is currently co-curating the Hammer’s biennial of Los Angeles-based artists, Made in LA, with Erin Christovale, for summer 2018. She received her Master’s of Art from the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College and has taught at Bard’s CCS, Rhode Island School of Design, School of the Visual Arts, George Washington University, and at The Center for the Study of Modern Art, University of Illinois at The Phillips in Washington DC.
