    Participant: Laurie Wilson

    The Friends of the Brill Library invite you to an evening with Laurie Wilson, who will be presenting her recently published biography, Louise Nevelson: Light and Shadow (Thames & Hudson, 2016).

    Praise for Laurie Wilson’s biography of Louise Nevelson:

    “Reads like at thriller with the hero, art, as savior . . . . This compelling biography examines Nevelson’s inner life, and portrays her as an artist, woman, and complex human being. It is fascinating to read how she cultivated her image and rose to prominence in what was the macho art world of her time with her evolved and original works. Wilson’s refreshing account also includes Nevelson’s inspirational friends—many of them women—from the movers and shakers of her era. “

    --Jane McAdam Freud, Sculptor

    Laurie Wilson is an art historian and practicing psychoanalyst on the faculty of the Institute for Psychoanalytic Education affiliated with the NYU School of Medicine. Her involvement with Nevelson dates back to the 1970s when she spent fifteen hours interviewing the artist for her doctoral dissertation, Louise Nevelson: Iconography and Sources (1978). She has also written over a dozen chapters, articles, and essays on Nevelson for professional journals and publications, including essays for the 1980 Whitney Museum exhibit, for which she conducted additional interviews with the artist.
