Renowned scholar and curator Dr. Barry Bergdoll will be Frost Art Museum’s guest for his lecture, Architecture in the Museum: The Case for Activism. Trained as an art historian, Dr. Bergdoll has focused his work on modern architectural history looking at architectures role in shaping culture and society. He has championed design thinking to respond to long-term challenges of global warming, called for the end of the cult of star architects, and pushed for museums to take on advocacy roles. Since 1981, the Steven & Dorothea Green Critics Lecture Series has introduced internationally renowned artists, museum curators, scholars and critics to the South Florida community. These speakers have shaped art history through their scholarly, creative, and leadership contributions. A reception follows the talk.
