    • In this edition of “I Don’t Get It,” the AAM is setting up a pop-up appropriation portrait studio in Nate Lowman’s exhibition Before and After. The evening will begin with an alternative curator-tour with the AAM’s Nancy and Bob Magoon CEO and Director, Heidi Zuckerman. This interactive discussion of Nate Lowman’s exhibition will be followed by an in-gallery art activity that turns a photograph taken of you by the museum into a portrait layered with pop culture references. The result will be a chance to see yourself in a new light and through the eyes of others.

    • Tod Williams and Billie Tsien began working together in 1977 and founded their architectural practice in 1986. Over the past three decades, Williams and Tsien have received more than two-dozen American Institute of Architects (AIA) Awards, primarily for their work on schools, museums, and nonprofits. Their studio focuses on “organizations and people that value issues of aspiration and meaning, timelessness and beauty.” This lecture is hosted in partnership with AIA and kicks off the Architecture Lecture Series’ tenth anniversary.

    • Sarah Cain was born in 1979, in Albany, New York, and lives and works in Los Angeles. Her playful, abstract paintings and installations feature a bold use of color, improvisation, and a variety of perspectives. Her work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, Contemporary Art Museum of Raleigh, NC, and the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego. Cain has created a large-scale installation at Elk Camp on Snowmass Mountain for the 2017–18 ski season, marking the twelfth consecutive year of the AAM’s Art in Unexpected Places.
