About the Center for Experimental Lectures:

The Center for Experimental Lectures is an artist's project that provides a platform to engage with the public lecture as a format. The Center for Experimental Lectures commissions new lecture performances with hopes of providing occasions to focus 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 31 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) 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.
