Making a contemporary artwork is not simply (and at times not at all) fabricating an object. The artist’s negotiations with curators and conservators are often crucial in determining the artwork’s very nature. This lecture will examine how the hybrid process of fabrication and negotiation shapes works of art, and how it affects the way that viewers should appreciate and interpret them.

A philosopher who specializes on aesthetics and the philosophy of art, Sherri Irvin has written extensively on matters related to contemporary art and the aesthetic experience in everyday life. She is currently working on a book tentatively titled Challenging Objects: Negotiations in Contemporary Art.
