ALA Presidents Program featuring Sarah Lewis Presidents program Moscone Convention Center
Esplanade 305
Description :

“Sarah Lewis is applying her turbocharged intellect to bridging the gap between art and social policy,” says Vogue magazine. Join ALA President Courtney L. Young to welcome art historian, critic, writer, and “cultural powerhouse” Lewis as she celebrates creativity, focusing on how it can lead us through fear and failure to ultimate success. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward and our failures that become the process?

“Embrace the Near Win” was selected as one of TED Talks’ 2014 Collection of the Most Powerful Talks. In it, as in her acclaimed debut book The Rise: Creativity, the Gift of Failure and the Search for Mastery (described by the New York Times as “strikingly original”), Lewis urges her audience to consider the role of the almost-failure in our own lives. “Coming close to what you thought you wanted can help you attain what you never dreamed you could,” she says. She came to understand that what really motivates us is “the unfinished” and that mastery is in the reaching rather than the arriving when, at her first museum job, she noticed that not every work by an artist she was studying was a total masterpiece.

Lewis has served on President Obama’s Arts Policy Committee, been selected for Oprah’s “Power List,” and is a Du Bois Fellow at Harvard University. She is also an active curator, having held positions at both the Tate Modern and The Museum of Modern Art. Her writing on contemporary art has been published extensively, and her fresh perspectives on the dialogue between culture, history, and identity have made her central to these conversations.
