Other artists speaking at the Greenwich Village independent art school this semester include an almost all-female line up of  Joan Waltemath, Judith Linhares, Melissa Meyer, Dana Frankfort, Josephine Halvorson and Sharon Horvath.  The token male is sculptor Charles Simonds (think clay villages in the Whitney Museum’s stairwell.)

And tomorrow, Wednesday October 5, Internationally-renowned Picasso biographer and scholar Marilyn McCully will speak at the Frick Collection in a talk that accompanies the major exhibition, Picasso Drawings: 1890-1921 which she co-curated with Susan Galassi.  McCully’s talk is titled “Picasso in Fontainebleau” and concerns the twelve weeks he spent in that town in 1921 and its impact on his neo-classical drawings of the period.

Various lecture series at the School of Visual Arts, including their Art in the First Person series with Carolee Schneemann, Rochelle Feinstein and others.  Next week, on Tuesday, October 11th, artcritical editor David Cohen presents “Artists Rights and Wrongs” with a panel response from philosopher Karen Gover and artist and Artnet editor Walter Robinson.  Cohen explores the problems of intention and authorization in such cases as Swiss installation artist Christoph Büchel’s fraught relationship with Mass MoCA some years ago.

Other season highlights on the New York lecture circuit are Enoc Perez and Gabriel Orozco at Hunter College, Liam Gillick at NYU, Julie Mehretu at the New School and Will Barnet at the National Academy.
