Recent participants include Marina Abramovic, Nick Cave, Theaster Gates, Massimiliano Gioni, Steve McQueen, Ron Nagle, Catherine Opie, Anne Pasternak, Lisa Phillips, Arlene Shechet, Frank Stella, Ryan Trecartin, Bill Viola and Kara Walker.
Programs are open to the public and held in Schermer Meeting Hall on the Anderson Ranch campus. Most presentations begin at 12:30 p.m., and seating is limited, so advanced registration is required.
