Description: A Horizon of Knowledge Lecture: Kathryn Smith is one of the foremost experts on Frank Lloyd Wright and modern architecture. Her books include Frank Lloyd Wright, Hollyhock House, and Olive Hill (1992, 2006); Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin and Taliesin West (1997); and Schindler House (2001, 2010). She is the author of the principal scholarly essay for the recently published monograph, The Show to End All Shows. This work, published by the Museum of Modern Art (New York, NY), is a full-length study on Wright’s important 1940 exhibition at the MoMA. She has contributed chapters to many books and has published essays, articles, and reviews in Studies in Modern Art (MoMA, New York), SAH Journal, The Art Bulletin, Frank Lloyd Wright Quarterly, Wright Studies and SD Space Design (Japan). Smith has held NEH, NEA, and Graham Foundation fellowships. In 2003, she was Scholar-in-Residence at the Frederick C. Robie House, Chicago through the Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust. In 2001, she was awarded the Wright Spirit Award in the Professional Category by the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy. Her essay, “A Beat of the Rhythmic Clock of Nature: Frank Lloyd Wright’s Waterfall Buildings,” was anthologized in the Frank Lloyd Wright Primer (2005, Robert McCarter, ed.). Kathryn Smith, who resides in a Charles Moore house in Santa Monica, California, is currently completing an NEH-sponsored research project on Frank Lloyd Wright’s many architectural exhibitions. This lecture was co-sponsored by the Graham Foundation, in association with the Horizons of Knowledge Lecture Series, American Studies, Comparative Literature, and the Robert and Avis Burke Lecture Series of the Department of the History of Art.
