Lecture and Discussion: David Reed and Stanley Whitney
Thursday, February 20 | 6:30PM
Two of the leading voices in painting today, Stanley Whitney and David Reed have both been exhibiting their artwork for over thirty years. Whitney and Reed will each discuss their art making practice. Following, the artists will engage in a discussion using their conversation from the Spring issue of Bomb Magazine as a jumping off point for both artistic and experiential contrast as well as comparison and discovery of previously unknown artistic insights that reveal themselves throughout an interview-like dialogue.
Admission to this event is free and open to the public.
