Intelligence Squared Sotheby’s Contemporary Conversations: The Rothko Chapel
Febuary 05 2021
Dedicated in 1971, the Rothko Chapel serves as a global destination for all faiths, a beloved sanctuary for contemplation housing 14 site-specific paintings by Mark Rothko. This autumn, following a year-and-a-half-long restoration to bring the space more in line with Rothko’s original vision, the chapel reopened to the public.
Join critic Professor Shahidha Bari in conversation with custodian of the Rothko legacy Christopher Rothko, international curator, critic and art writer Dr David Anfam and Sotheby’s EVP, Chairman Lisa Dennison, honouring the Rothko Chapel’s 50 years as a landmark of modern sacred art.
