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.  

The Center for Experimental Lectures was started in 2011 by Gordon Hall, and since then has commissioned 37 new lecture-performances at a variety of venues including Alderman Exhibitions (Chicago), Recess (NYC), MoMA PS1 (NYC), The Shandaken Project (Shandaken, NY), The Shandaken Project at Storm King (New Windsor, NY), Interstate Projects (Brooklyn, NY), Brooklyn Academy of Music, Artists Space (NYC) and at the Whitney Museum of American Art presenting   Seminars with Artists   in conjunction with the 2014 Whitney Biennial. Starting in 2016 Joseph Lubitz joined Gordon Hall as an organizing collaborator at the CEL. An archive including video and written transcripts can be found on our archive page.
