In Conversation: Remembering Huguette Caland with Brigitte Caland, L’Or Puymartin, Robert Wilhite, and Chief Curator Claire Gilman

“I love every minute of my life. I squeeze it like an orange, and I eat the peel, because I don’t want to miss a thing. “ —Huguette Caland, 2003

Join us for a discussion about the life and spirit of the fearless Lebanese artist, designer, and writer Huguette Caland. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Huguette Caland: Tête-à-Tête, this afternoon of intimate remembrances and conversation will be hosted by the artist's daughter Brigitte Caland and granddaughter L’Or Puymartin, along with the Los Angeles-based artist Robert Wilhite and The Drawing Center's Chief Curator, Claire Gilman.

Huguette Caland: Tête-à-Tête is the artist's most comprehensive solo museum exhibition. Bringing together works on paper and canvas from the past five decades—as well as caftans, mannequins, sculptures, and notebooks on and in which she wielded her pen—the exhibition shows how Caland used the candidness and mutability of the medium of drawing to challenge traditional representations of sexuality, the body and desire.

  • Tips for a Successful Zoom Session

    • Log in 5-10 minutes before the workshop begins to avoid any technical delays.
    • Use a desktop or laptop for the best image quality. A tablet will also do, but on a smartphone, the image may be too small.
    • Make sure you have a stable wifi connection before the workshop begins
  • Documentation

    • The Drawing Center tries to share its programs as widely as possible, which means recording our programming and making it available online. By attending the event, you consent to audio recording and video recording and its/their release, publication, or exhibition.
