Last week, we welcomed author and artist Lilianne Milgrom to a Zoom edition of our “Evenings with an Author” series. Programs Manager Catherine Olien interviewed her about her novel, L’Origine: The secret life of the world’s most erotic masterpiece. To view the program on our YouTube channel, click here.
During the end of the event, one attendee asked Lilianne if she had any recommendations for contemporary artists she thought we might enjoy– as you might imagine, Lilianne had many to recommend! We wanted to share them with you here.
We hope you enjoy the list! And for more about Lilianne’s work, please continue to the bottom of the post.
