Nate Lowman: Homage to Jay DeFeo

FRI, May 17, 2013
6:30 pm

 

For this evening’s program, artist Nate Lowman will present a live action painting performance as an homage to Jay DeFeo. Taking inspiration from the time-honored tradition of copying paintings in museums, Lowman will replicate a work currently on view in Jay DeFeo: A Retrospective, while opening up his own studio practice to the public. Like Delacroix and other artists who carefully copied Old Masters in the Louvre, Lowman’s process of close looking and careful preparation belie the feeling of spontaneity that permeates both DeFeo’s work and his own.

 

 

The My Turn public programs series expands the definition of the museum program by inviting a guest artist to interpret an exhibition or another artist’s work.

 

This event is free with Museum admission, which is pay-what-you-wish on Fridays, 6–9 pm. There are no special tickets or reservations.
