About the Center for Experimental Lectures:


The Center for Experimental Lectures is an artists project based in New York that engages with the public lecture as form. The Center for Experimental Lectures commissions new lecture-performances, focusing on not only the content and format of each unique lecture but also the possibilities of the lecture as a creative platform.  

Initiated by Gordon Hall in 2011, and co-organized with Joseph Lubitz since 2016, the Center for Experimental Lectures has commissioned 43 new lectures at venues including Recess, MoMA PS1, The Shandaken Project at Storm King, Interstate Projects, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Artists Space, the Rhode Island School of Design and RISD Museum, Kunsthaus Glarus, and at the Whitney Museum of American Art presenting   Seminars with Artists   in conjunction with the 2014 Whitney Biennial. An archive including video and written transcripts can be found on our archive page.
