Karen Wilkin, the independent curator and critic and foremost expert on the work of Sir Anthony Caro, will give a lecture tonight on his work titled “Anthony Caro and the Onward of Art”.  Her talk complements an exhibition of Caro’s work on the Met’s roof which has run through the summer and closes October 30.

Wilkin is the author of several monographs and museum catalogues devoted to Caro, along with countless publications on Caro’s American peers, among them Helen Frankenthaler, Jules Olitski, and his critical champion Clement Greenberg.  Recently she edited a series of five monographs published by Lund Humphries offering different thematic takes on Caro’s work, her own volume, titled “Interior and Exterior,” tackling issues of space and scale that are promised as the focus of tonight’s talk.

The lecture is at 6pm at the Bonnie J. Sacerdote Lecture Hall, Uris Center for Education, and is free with admission to the museum.

Other  lectures of note upcoming in the next week around New York include Gabriel Orozco who is talking at Hunter College next Tuesday, October 18, and painter Judith Linhares, the same night at the New York Studio School.

See artcritical’s  listings of lectures, panels and events for further details.
