It is my pleasure to announce that I will be joining the Graduate Student Gallery Lecture program at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston this fall.
October 11th from 12:00-1:00 and October 25th from 12:00-1:00 join me for the following talk:
Power in the Absence of Color:
What happens when we remove color from the equation? This talk explores the power of black and white imagery and objects in Contemporary art. Looking at work by artists such as Louise Nevelson, Glenn Ligon, Kara Walker, and Fred Wilson we will discuss the ways in which these artists are expressing a contemporary experience in the absence of color.
And coming up in November and December...
Re-imagining the Figure in Modern European Art
This talk examines the ways in which Modern European artists such as Pablo Picasso, Alberto Giacometti and Henri Matisse began to explore various ways of approaching and re-imagining the figure. How did Picasso move from work like Fernande Olivier to his trademark Cubist style seen in his 1910 Portrait of a Woman? And more importantly, why?
The Performance of Painting: Abstract Expressionism in America
What does it mean to perform a painting? In this gallery talk we will take an in depth look at the powerful drips of Jackson Pollock, the aggressive splashes and mark-making of Joan Mitchell, and the evocative pours of Helen Frankenthaler to explore ideas of performance in relation to painting.
I hope to see you there!
